News editor Siasat Mr. Amer Ali Khan said that 12% reservations campaign is a non-political movement which is run in the interest of Muslim community. Addressing a public meeting held by Jogipet Muslim Joint Action Committee at Bahadur Khan Function Hall, under the chairmanship of Mr. Arshad Mohiuddin reporter Siasat, he recalled that TRS had promised to provide 12% reservations to Muslims in its election manifesto however even after 18 months of coming to power it has not fulfilled its promise made to Muslims.
Mr. Khan demanded that the government fulfil its promise and after that make recruitments on government post. He further said government has announced to fill more than 1 lakh government posts and notification for more than 15 thousand posts has already issued. If provided reservations Muslims can grab 16000 government posts.
He appealed Muslims to become united to mount pressure on the government in democratic manner. Mr. Amer Ali Khan informed that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has announced to provide 12% reservations to Muslims by amending 9th schedule while BJP is in power at the centre hence Muslims have no hope from central government. If Chief Minister of Telangana wants to mount pressure on Prime Minister Narendra Modi he may do so, but before that he must fulfil the promise made to Muslims by forming BC Commission. He also mentioned SC ST subplan through which SCs and STs are getting grants of lakhs of rupees.
