Ujjain, Feb 27
Bharatiya Jan Shakti President and former Madhya Pradesh chief
minister Uma Bharti today demanded at least 50 per cent reservation
for dalit, Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Backward Classes in
the proposed Women's Reservation Bill that provides for 33 per cent
reservation for women in the Lok Sabha and assemblies.
''Reservation should be provided to them in the Bill as well as
separately,'' Ms Bharti told media here.
She claimed that several leaders - including Tamil Nadu Chief Minister
M Karunanidhi, former Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu
Naidu, Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad and Nationalist Congress
Party President Sharad Pawar - are with her in this regard.
The BJS chief, who is ready to ''fast unto death'' in support of her
demand, said that she completed preparations for a related Delhi
meeting of political leaders from various affiliations.
