|Dear Sagar Media Inc,
This product is used every month for health reasons and yet it is taxed.
Condoms and contraceptives are not taxed for health reasons. But sanitary napkins which are critical for the health of millions of women are taxed!
This tax makes sanitary napkins expensive for middle class families.
It also makes them unaffordable for lakhs of poor Indian women who end up using dangerous materials such as straw, ash and sand instead.
Sign my petition and ask the Government to make sanitary napkins tax free so that they are cheap and affordable for all.
Over 2,60,000 people have already signed my petition. Because of this Maneka Gandhi, Minister For Women and Child Development has already supported our campaign.
Now, Sushma Swaraj is leading a Government Committee that will take a decision on making Sanitary Napkins tax-free.
This is going to be the final and decisive moment and we must show Sushma Swaraj that there is massive public support for this issue.
Your signature will be critical in convincing Sushma Swaraj to take the right decision. Help me reach at least 3 lakh signatures so that I can take this petition to her.
Sagar Media Inc, let us not lose this opportunity to make a BIG difference to the lives of millions of Indian women.
Thank you for taking action,
Lok Sabha MP
