New Delhi: Government on Thursday said it hopes

Sabha in the Monsoon session of Parliament commencing on July

Asked whether the bill would be introduced in the Lok
Sabha in the upcoming session, Information and Broadcasting

The bill, providing for 33 per cent reservation for women
in the Lok Sabha and State Assemblies, was passed by the Rajya
Sabha on March 9.

Asked about unruly behaviour of opposition MLAs in Bihar
assembly yesterday, Soni said it should be condemned.
In Bihar, 67 opposition MLAs were suspended yesterday for
unruly behaviour and marshalled out as utter chaos prevailed

flung at the Speaker and a woman member threw several flower
pots around.
