Bhubaneswar: A day after BJD supremo and Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to take the leadership in initiating steps for passing the Bill for reservation of one-third of seats in Parliament and State Legislatures for women, he today advised his senior party leaders to meet all national and regional parties for passing the pending Bill.

In this context a meeting of all the senior leaders of BJD was chaired by the supremo at Naveen Niwas and the decision was taken that the senior BJD leaders will meet the various parties and leaders by December 11.

Soon after the important party meeting at Naveen Niwas was over, BJD vice-president and senior MLA Debi Prasad Mishra said, “During the 2004 election, Congress-led UPA had promised for women reservation in both the Parliament and Assemblies. Even BJP-led NDA had also promised in the 2014 general elections.”

“There are 7 national parties and 15 regional parties. It has been decided today that our party will appeal all those parties to raise this issue so that the longstanding women reservation bill is passed in the Parliament and it is also implemented in all the State legislatures.”
