Women’s bill

Raipur, July 19 (PTI): Bowing to pressure from its women leaders, the BJP demanded an early amendment to the Constitution declaring 33 per cent of Lok Sabha seats as double-member constituencies with a mandatory provision reserving one of the twin seats for women. But it rejected demands for an OBC quota in it.

If the proposal is implemented, the number of Lok Sabha members will go up by 181.
