SHRI SUDIP BANDYOPADHYAY (CALCUTTA NORTH WEST): Sir, the NDA is committed to introduce Women's Reservation Bill. Shri Pramod Mahajan has categorically announced it on the floor of the House that in this current Session this Bill will be introduced.

We, Trinamool Congress, are also committed in our Election Manifesto for providing 33 per cent reservation to women.

Sir, the hon. Prime Minister has started initiating dialogue with all parties in regard to Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty. We also urge the Prime Minister to take initiative in consulting with all other political parties so far as the Women's Reservation Bill is concerned. This Session will be concluded within three days. We humbly submit to the Government that as per our Election Manifesto, 33 per cent reservation to women is a must and Trinamool Congress stands by this announcement. We want to reiterate our confidence and affirm our confirmation on this Bill.

SHRI G.M. BANATWALLA (PONNANI): Sir, we have repeatedly told in this House that if there is any section of our society that needs reservation very badly, it is the Muslims, the minorities, and the OBC. It is absolutely necessary that steps be taken to provide reservation for the Muslims, reservation for the minorities, and reservation for the OBC. So, I must reiterate that if there is any section in our society that needs reservation very badly, it is the Muslims, the minorities, and the OBC.

Sir, I would remind this House that when our draft Constitution was being prepared, it had a clause of reservation for Muslisms. That clause was later on dropped. But at the time when the clause was being dropped, the then President of the Indian National Congress, Shri Pattabhi Sitaramaiah had said in this particular House, in the Constituent Assembly, "We have now promised due reservation to the minorities, due reservation to the Muslims and though there may not be a constitutional provision, yet the reservation should continue.

I must therefore say that this particular Bill should be dropped altogether. ... (Interruptions)

MR. DEPUTY-SPEAKER: They have not allowed even Shri Madhavrao Scindia to speak. It is condemnable.

SHRI G.M. BANATWALLA : Mr. Deputy-Speaker, Sir, I would submit that the proposed Women's Reservation Bill which the Government wants to introduce must be dropped altogether. I appeal to the Government to come forward with a Bill, which is the real response to the prevalent situation with respect to representation of the various sections of the society in the House. I must appeal to the Government to come with a Bill in order to provide reservation for the Muslims, in order to provide reservation for the minorities, and in order to provide reservation for the OBC. That is the need of the hour.
