I have interacted with transgenders. I came to know many aspects of their lives not generally known. They are facing exploitation at every level. We need to empower them by giving them their basic rights. Enacting a law takes time, so I will wait for at least two sessions to see how much is done. If their basic rights of jobs and marriage have not been addressed, I will take it up.
