Leave one-third seats for women, says KSSP

K.T. Radhakrishnan, new KSSP president.

MUNDUR (PALAKKAD): The 48 {+t} {+h} State conference of the Kerala Sasthra Sahitya Parishad has demanded that the political parties field women in one-third of the seats in the Assembly elections.

A resolution passed at the conference here on Saturday said: “Only the Rajya Sabha had passed the women's reservation Bill brought by the Union government. The Bill could not be passed in the Lok Sabha till now. So women are not getting their due share of the Lok Sabha and the Assembly seats. Thus, to pass the Bill in the Lok Sabha and get one-third reservation for women in the elected bodies, the political parties should themselves reserve one-third of the seats for women candidates in the coming Assembly elections.”

The conference elected K.T. Radhakrishnan president and T.P. Sreeshankar general secretary of the organisation. T.K. Devarajan and T.K. Meerabhai were elected vice-presidents and P.V. Vinod treasurer.
