Participating in the debate on Motion of Thanks to the President’s Address in the Lok Sabha, Yadav said he was not against greater participation of women in politics but it should be done through consensus.
He sought to reach out to the BJP, JD(U), RJD and Left, seeking their support to stall the bill which provides for 33 per cent reservation for women in Lok Sabha and Assemblies.
“The bill is dangerous for the leadership of Lok Sabha ... It is a conspiracy...It would finish the leadership,” Yadav said.
Elaborating, he said leaders like L K Advani, M M Joshi, Sharad Yadav and Lalu Prasad had not reached the present state in a day but through “hard struggles”.
