Hyderabad: TRS MP Bura Narasiah Gowd on Friday demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi provide a minimum 33 percent reservation to OBCs in parliament.
The Centre should initiate steps to ensure reservations of seats to the most deprived Backward Classes, and they are also included in the proposed amendment.
As per a report by Deccan Chronicle, he further said that though the Centre had conducted a socio-economic survey of all castes and groups, the results had not been released. He demanded that the results be released on high priority.
He also said the TRS was demanding women reservations since its outset but there has been a delay on part of the Modi government in passing the Bill.
The Centre should reserve seats for OBCs and then go for women reservations to give equal representation for women in all reserved and general seats, he added
Congress president Sonia Gandhi had written to Mr Modi to use the BJP’s strength in the Lok Sabha to push through the Women’s Reservation Bill.
