New Delhi, Mar 4: The Center's plan to introduce Women's Reservation Bill in the Rajya Sabha on Mar 8, has been received with threats from both the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD).
“Yuddha hoga" [There will be war], declared Prasad interjecting in the discussion in the Lok Sabha on the Motion of Thanks to the President for her address.
Samajawadi Party too is not far behind in making its intention clear about refusing to accept the bill.
Warning of an 'uproar' in parliament, SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav said that the party will vehemently protest the presentation of bill.
"At the most what you can do is to throw us out [of the House] and cancel our membership," SP supremo Mulayam Singh Singh said
Both the parties are against the amendment of the Bill in its present form and had suggested a quota for women from the backward classes.
The decision to move the Bill in the Parliament after being cleared the Union Cabinet a week ago is being seen as as ploy to divide the opposition parties which have joined hands against the goverment over price rise.
