Women's Bill can be amended: Pawar

NCP president Sharad Pawar on Sunday said he had counseled the three Yadavs-Mulayam Singh, Laloo Prasad and Sharad- not to stall the passage of the Women Reservation Bill in the Lok Sabha as their views on the quota for OBC and minorities could be taken into consideration by the government.

 

"A combination of Yadavs has emerged to oppose the Bill. I had a talk with them. I told them that the bill could be amended to address their concerns in respect of OBC and Muslim women. A reduction in the proposed 33% reservation can be considered to arrive at a consensus", he said while speaking at the concluding session of NCP's two-day national conclave at Karla, about 50 km from here.
