RJD warns government of crisis

New Delhi Bureau

NEW DELHI: The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) on Wednesday warned the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government of the possibility of a crisis bigger than the one caused by the India-U.S. nuclear deal if it went ahead with the Women’s Reservation Bill without factoring in the party’s concerns.

Briefing journalists here, a day after the Bill was introduced in the Rajya Sabha amid protests, RJD spokesman Devendra Prasad Yadav did not rule out the party leaving the UPA if the situation so warranted. His was the second largest party in the UPA. The government would be responsible for whatever happened if the RJD sought a division at the time of passage of the Bill.

He insisted that the RJD was not against reservation for women in legislatures, and reiterated its demand for proportionate representation to women from all disadvantaged sections — SCs, STs, OBCs and minorities.
