BJP wants to replicate Bihar experiment in Goa: Irani
BJP wants to replicate its `Bihar experiment` in Goa in the forthcoming state Assembly polls.
Panaji: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) wants
to replicate its `Bihar experiment` in Goa in the forthcoming
state Assembly elections.
BJP Mahila Morcha`s National President Smriti Irani told
reporters here that the party had conducted a detailed survey
before allotting the tickets in 2010 Bihar elections.
"We had given tickets to 13 women candidates, of which 11
won," she said, adding that in one case a sitting legislator
was denied the ticket to make way for a woman candidate.
The actor-turned politician said that same experiment
would be repeated in Goa.
When asked if BJP would give more tickets to women in
2012 polls here, she said that "winnability" mattered.
"It will be a party`s decision," she said.
