Odisha has set a precedent for other states in the country. Thirty three per cent of the total lawmakers elected from the state to the 17th Lok Sabha are women and Odisha is the only state to achieve the feat this time. This comes two months after Naveen Patnaik, who took oath as the chief minister of Odisha for a record fifth term on Wednesday after securing a big election win, announced 33 per cent reservation for women in party tickets. As he took oath, he promised to continue to focus on women voters who made sure that he secured an impressive and comfortable majority. He also has said he is going to push for the passage of women's reservation bill and ensure that there are 33 percent women in parliament.
