New Delhi: The government is planning to bring the Women Reservation Bill, approved by the Union Cabinet last night, before Parliament next week and is confident of getting it passed despite vociferous opposition by RJD, SP and JD(U).


Law Minister and senior Congress leader Veerappa Moily told mediapersons that the bill would be brought before the Lok Sabha next week.


Asked whether the government was confident of having the required two third majority required for the Constitution amendment bill passed by the Parliament despite opposition by RJD, JD(U) and Samajwadi party, he said, ''There is some opposition, but we will sail through.''


He said the government would manage to get the required support for the bill both in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.


National Commission for Women Chairperson Girija Vyas welcomed the cabinet approval to the bill and said now they need not just hope but could say with confidence that the bill would be brought before the Parliament and passed by it.


However, RJD leader Lalu Prasad criticised the government for planning to bring the bill without giving representation to poor and dalit women through a sub-quota for OBC women within the 33 per cent reservation.


Asserting that his party would oppose the bill, Mr Prasad said the women were suffering due to price rise and the government was planning to bring the reservation bill to placate some sections.
