"If the UPA government tables the (women's reservation) bill in its present form in Parliament during its monsoon session, the BJP will support it," Swaraj told media-persons after attending a women's rally.
Swaraj said the BJP was also ready to support the Election Commission's proposal for 33 per cent reservation for women within all political parties. In this regard, she pointed out that BJP president Rajnath Singh had already issued a written consent to the EC's proposal.
