Dimapur, Feb. 1: The Joint Action Committee on Women Reservation (JACWR), which has been spearheading the fight for 33% seat reservation for women, has been dissolved, with effect from February 1.

In a press release issued Wednesday, the JAWCR informed that it has resolved to dissolve the committee following the withdrawal of the Civil Appeal and the Writ Petition from the Supreme Court of India.

“All respective organisations will from now on, function independently on the issue of women reservation, after the withdrawal of the SLP. We are grateful to the committed support for the last six years from all the apex women organisations in the state,” it stated.
