Congress president Sonia Gandhi has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urging him to use the BJP's majority in the Lok Sabha and ensure the passage of the long-pending Women's Reservation Bill. The Bill was passed in the Rajya Sabha in 2010 during the Congress-led UPA's rule, but it has not been tabled in the Lower House since then.

Sonia wrote the letter on Wednesday evening, amid a buzz within the Congress that she might end her 19-year tenure as party president by October 31 in favour of her son Rahul Gandhi. "I am writing to request you to take advantage of your majority in the Lok Sabha to now get the Women's Reservation Bill Passed in the Lower House as well," she said in the letter, adding that the Bill has languished in the Lok Sabha for one reason or ...
