Watch: Epicentre With Marya Shakil

Sep 08, 2018 11:37 AM IST India India

As 2019 inches closer, it seems that women are coming to the rescue of nation's grand old party, Congress. CNN-News18 learns that Congress is taking a 'women first' approach while preparing the party's blueprint for the 2019 Polls. The Congress is going to put the spotlight back on the women's reservation bill - an issue that was part of the UPA government's common minimum programme when it came to power in 2004.-- but never saw the light of day in the 10 years that Congress was in power. We're learning that 25 percent of the tickets that Congress will give out for 2019 will be to women-- with the aim to rope in women intellectuals and achievers to campaign for the party. And finally, Congress is also getting ready to pull out the big guns - as Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is expected to play a lead role in the Mahila Congress. The question we're asking on Epicentre tonight then is, Will Congress' 'naari shakti' trump BJP's 'beti bachao' push?
