Former president Telangana Pradesh Congress Minority Department Mohammed Sirajuddin declared August 19 as black day for the Muslims of Telangana. He asserted that TRS in its election manifesto had promised to provide 12 percent reservations to Muslims however without providing reservations Chief Minister of Telangana Mr. K Chandrasekhar Rao announced to make recruitment on 15000 engineering jobs through Telangana Public Service Commission. Thus he has cheated Muslims. Congress party strongly condemns this move.
Mr. Sirajuddin lamented upon meaningful silence of Majlis and TRS on the decision.
He claimed that in 2004 Congress promised reservation to Muslims and provided 4 percent reservations which benefited lakhs of Muslim youth.
