Lucknow: The newly formed Jankranti Party headed by Kalyan Singh's son Rajvir Singh, on Tuesday issued its roadmap favouring 33 per cent reservation for women in legislatures but opposing Rangnath Misra report recommending quota for Muslims.

"The party advocates 33 per cent reservation for women in legislatures though in the name of social justice it would want separate quota for women belonging to the SC\ST and backwards category," Rajvir Singh said releasing the party's roadmap here.

On the Rangnath Committee report, the party opposes its recommendation for reservation on the ground of religion also because it would be cutting into the quota fixed for the SC\STs and backward castes, Singh said.

Spelling out the party's ideology, he said it would follow the basic principles of Hindutva, Rashtravad, democracy, Ram temple and social justice.

Asserting that the party would never field mafia or criminal elements in elections, Singh said it would set up its organisational structure by June 30, 2010 after which rallies and meetings would be organised in different parts of the state.
