The Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI-M) released its manifesto in New Delhi on March 28 calling for a comprehensive anti-discriminatory bill covering the LGBTQIA+ community of the country. In a significant move, the CPI-M has advocated for reservation in education institutions; ensuring horizontal reservation in employment for the community. The manifesto proposed passing the Rights of Transgender Persons Bill, 2014 to uphold the rights of all transgender persons and removing the lacunae present in the current Transgender Persons Bill, 2018.
