Naveen Patnaik – Chief Minister, Odisha:
Biju Janata Dal has transformed into a social movement and women are the soul of this social movement.
Biju Janata Dal will continue to fight in every platform for reservation of women in Lok Sabha and Legislative Assembly.
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.
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.
