SET Reading  Comprehension Model Question Paper

Read the following passage and answer the question  Nos. 1 to 5

The Constitution guarantees every citizen the  fundamental right to  equality. Yet  after  50 years of  independence, just  one perusal  of the  female infant mortality figures, the  literacy rates  and  the  employment  opportunities  for women is sufficient evidence that discrimination exists.  Almost predictably, this gender, bias is evident in our political system as well.   In the  13th  Lok Sabha, there  were  only 43 women :MPs out  of a total  of  543;  it  is not  a surprising figure, for never has women’s  representation  in  Parliament  been more than 10 per cent.

Historically, the manifestos of major political parties have always encouraged women’s   participation.     It has  been  merely  a  charade.  So,  women’s organizations, denied a place on merit, opted for the last resort:  a reservation of seats for women in parliament and State Assemblies. Parties, which look at everything with a vote bank in mind, seemed to endorse this.   Alas, this too was a mirage.

But there is another aspect also.  At a time when caste is the trump card, some politicians want the  bill to  include further  quotas  for  women  from among minorities and backward castes.   There is more to it.   A survey shows that there is a general antipathy towards the bill.   It is actually a classic case of doublespeak : in public, politicians were endorsing women’s  reservation  but in the backrooms of Parliament, they were busy sabotaging it.   The reasons are clear: Menjust don’t want to vacate their seats of power.
