The state government has told the Orissa high court that it is not feasible to provide reservation for the third gender in the urban local body elections.
In response to a writ petition filed in the HC by a leader of the transgender community and social activist Meera Parida seeking direction to the housing and urban development department to provide 2% reservation for the third gender in ULB elections, the state government filed an affidavit on Wednesday.
