New Delhi: After Sonia’s letter PM Modi asking him to take advantage of his government to give more power to women. The BJP party said, the Congress president should have directed her appeal at her two allies, Rashtriya Janata Dal’s (RJD) Lalu Prasad Yadav and Samajwadi Party’s (SP) Mulayam Singh Yadav.

“Rather than writing to the Prime Minister, Sonia Gandhi ought to have written or spoken to her alliance partners like Lalu Prasad and Mulayam Singh Yadav to find out why did they block the Women’s Reservation Bill when the UPA was in power,” BJP spokesperson G V L Narasimha Rao said, according to news agency Press Trust of India.

The Manmohan Singh government, however, could not get the Bill passed in the Lok Sabha due to strong opposition from allies like SP, RJD and Trinamool Congress.

RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav and SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav had strongly opposed the bill when the UPA government introduced it in Parliament in 2010. Both the RJD and SP were then supporting the Congress-led government.

Sonia Gandhi had on Wednesday written to PM Modi, urging him to get the Women’s Reservation Bill passed in the Lok Sabha by taking advantage of the BJP’s majority in the House and also promising her party’s support to the legislation.
