Accusing Trianmool Congress of taking an "opportunistic" stand on the Women's Reservation Bill, CPM leader Brinda Karat on Tuesday said its chief Mamata Banerjee did not seem to have any commitment towards women. "Trinamool Congress has been very opportunistic over the Women's Reservation Bill. In the past, Mamata Banerjee had taken initiative over the issue.
"In fact, she had tried to prevent Sharad Yadav from blocking the Bill a few years back. But now she does not seem to have any commitment towards women," she told reporters outside. She was reacting to the absence of Trinamool MPs from the Rajya Sabha during the discussion of the Bill.
On the Mamata's accusation that the Left has joined hands with BJP, Karat said "It was Mamata who was part of the BJP-led government. So, she should not say this." PTI
