Mumbai: The National Congress Party (NCP) today, set up its lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-gender (LGBT) cell and claimed to be the first political party in the country to take such step.

NCP Maharashtra President Jayant Patil and MP Supriya Sule officially launched the functioning of the LGBT cell in Mumbai.

“We felt LGBT community needs equal rights, so we made a separate cell for them”, said Supriya.

Maharashtra minister and state NCP chief appointed Priya Patil as its state unit head.

“The NCP was the first to set up Yuvati (young women) cell. Now, it has set up LGBT cell to do justice to the deprived section,” a party statement said quoting Jayant.

NCP Lok Sabha member Supriya was also present on the occasion.

Priya said the cell will work to ensure the community members get their rights.

Apart from Priya, the cell will have 13 other office-bearers, the statement said.
