New Delhi, September 19 (IANS) Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut on Tuesday lauded the BJP-led government at the Centre after the Women's Reservation Bill was tabled by Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal saying Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given priority to women empowerment .
"BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi could have discussed anything, but they took the matter of women empowerment by giving priority to women. This is fantastic", elated Kangana told reporters referring to the Women's Reservation Bill.
The 'Manikarnika' actor who visited the new Parliament building, while lauding the Prime Minister further said, "Our Prime Minister ji is a source of inspiration for all the countrymen."

This is the time of the girl child (no more female foeticide) this is the time of the young women (no more clinging to men for safety and security), this is the time of the Middle aged women (no you are not unwanted and won't be devalued anymore) this is the time of the elderly women (the world needs your wisdom and experience as well, your time has come) Welcome to the new world. Welcome to the Bharat of our dreams #WomenReservationBill."
