Women’s Bill will be adopted despite Lalu: Nitish
Patna: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today
claimed that the Women`s Reservation Bill being supported by
him and other like minded parties would be adopted by the Lok
Sabha in its present form despite the opposition of RJD
supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav.
Reacting to Prasad`s reported statement during a road show
in his parliamentary constituency (Chapra) yesterday where he
stated that the present form of Women`s Reservation Bill would
be passed in the lower house of Parliament only over his dead
body, Kumar told PTI in his Assembly chamber that Prasad had
made a similar statement regarding creation of a separate
Kumar said Lalu Prasad had made a statement in the state
Assembly in the later part of the 90`s that Jharkhand would be
created over his dead body but later rescinded and bifurcated
the state on November 15, 2000 in a bid to cling to power.
Kumar said that none would take Lalu`s utterances
seriously and he and his alliance partner, LJP should be
prepared for drubbing at the hands of the people of Bihar
during the coming assembly elections.
The people of Bihar would repose faith in the NDA
government once again that believes in development with
social justice, Kumar stated.
