New Delhi: Environment Minister Jayanthi Natarajan on Monday took a dig at JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav, saying he has no confidence on a woman minister apparently due to his reservations on the Women's Reservation Bill.

Replying to a debate on the state of river Ganga in the Lok Sabha, Natarajan referred to certain comparisons made by Yadav between her predecessor Jairam Ramesh and herself while participating in the discussion.

She said may be Yadav is not confident of her performance due to his reservations on the Women's Reservation Bill. In a lighter vein, she said while referring to Ganga as "mother", members in the House have given "great deal of respect" to women while participating in the debate.
