Strongly crticising Yadav for his objection to the Women‘s reservation Bill, NFIW’s local unit General Secretary P Sarala in a release here said “We will burn an effigy of Sharad Yadav to mark our strong condemnation.”

Yadav had threatened to consume poison on the floor of Parliament if the UPA went ahead with its promise to pass the long-pending legislation in its present form.
