New Delhi, Mar 10: Carrying  his opposition to the Women's Reservation Bill foward, RJD chief Lalu Prasad has said that a letter withdrawing support to the UPA government would be handed over the President on Wednesday, Mar 10.

"I will hand over the letter to the President withdrawing support," Lalu said.

The RJD chief expressed anger at the government's decision to go ahead with the Women's Reservation Bill despite the request made by him and the Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav during their meeting with the Prime Minister.

Meanwhile the SP chief, who was also present, refrain from making any statement on the withdrawal letter, though he did not hold back from attacking the government for 'forcing the bill in Rajya Sabha'.

"I have already announced withdrawing support. We will let you know when we write the letter," he said.

However, the SP chief walked out in a huff when he was asked whether he was hesitating from officially withdrawing support due to the CBI cases against him.

With regard to the eviction of the MPs by the Marshals, Lalu said that the move was unprecented.
