Mulayam, Sharad Yadav keep up opposition to women’s quota bill

NEW DELHI: A brief discussion in Lok Sabha on Tuesday highlighted familiar and contending positions on the women’s reservation bill with backward caste stalwarts like Mulayam Singh Yadav and Sharad Yadav demanding on a quota within quota for OBC, minority, tribal and dalit women.

Mulayam said he preferred a law that will ask political parties to reserve 15% per cent tickets for women rather than a bill on a quota in Parliament. Sharad Yadav said only certain women who “lived in cities likeDelhi and Lucknow” would benefit, suggesting he has not really revised the sentiment behind his controversial “par kati (short haired city women)” remark.
