The infrastructure in the rural areas is developing at a very slow pace  and is providing employment to only few people  fulfilling their bare minimum needs sufficient to meet their basic needs.

This difference is posing as a major hindrance to the socio-economic and political participation of the rural women labourers effectively. This article highlights the issues faced by the rural women labourers for their active political participation in the political arena of our country and offers suggestions to overcome them through the involvement of all the stakeholders respectively
