After the bill was passed at Rajya Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted -

Minister of Law and Justice, Ravi Shankar Prasad, stated, “This issue should not be seen through a political prism or votebank politics. This is a question of humanity. This is for ensuring justice to women, dignity and empowerment to women and to ensure gender dignity and equality”.
