A private push for transgender rights
Private member's bills are a little-known feature of India's Parliament. They serve as an opportunity for members to bring up issues that they feel strongly about. These are then debated and discussed, but, not a single private member's bill has been passed by Parliament in the past 45 years. Instead, when the debate concludes, the minister responsible for the policy domain under discussion assures the member who moved the bill that the government will itself bring out a more comprehensive bill on the topic. Then the minister requests the member to withdraw the bill, which the member promptly does. Eventually, if all the stars align appropriately, the government will bring its own bill on the topic. Otherwise the world moves on.
