Bhubaneswar: As Odisha CM Naveen Patniak wrote letter to PM demanding 33% reservation for women in Assembly and Parliament, BJP Mahila Morcha members today asked Patnaik to first amend Biju Janata Dal (BJD) constitution.
BJP Mahila Morcha state president Pravati parida said,
Naveen Patnaik should first amend BJD constitution and ensure 33 percent for women within the party. From Kunduli to Belatikiri, CM failed to give justice to women. Just for mere politics and to hide his failure, he is playing the reservation card.
She further suggested that CM should ask 3-4 Rajya Sabha MPs to resign and in their places he should send lady members from his party. Within BJP, from top to bottom, there is 33 percent space given to women, she added.
