Bhubaneswar: In 2019 Assembly elections, BJD was the only party in the country that gave 33 % reservation to women. We are also fighting for their reservation of same percentage in Parliament says Naveen Patnaik. Mothers and sisters, who run their households, can also run Panchayats & Zilla Parishads with equal competence, says Naveen Patnaik quoting Biju Babu. Women empowerment is my favourite programme. Biju Babu had created history by giving 33% reservation to women in Panchayat elections says BJD Supremo & Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik addressing party workers on BJD Foundation Day.
National parties remember women empowerment during elections and commit it in their manifesto only to conveniently forget after winning the elections. BJD will keep reminding the national parties about this forgotten promise says BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik.
No household, no state, no country has progressed without empowering its women. From now on, in every session of Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha and Legislative Assembly, BJD will raise the women’s reservation issue and remind national parties about their promises says CM Naveen Patnaik.
