4% reservations for Muslims would be implemented – Mahmood Ali

Hyderabad: Dy. CM of Telangana State told that the Govt. would implement 4% reservations for Muslims and no Muslim candidates would be deprived of this benefit. On the condition of producing non-creamy layer certificate by BC-E candidates, Dy. CM told that he would make a representation to CM and also talk to the authorities of Telangana Public Service Commission. He further told that he is of the opinion that there is no need for BC-E candidates to furnish this certificate. Muslim candidates belonging to BC-E category should be exempted from producing this certificate as is the practice for other BC candidates. If TSPSC has imposed such condition on its own, he would request the CM for amending it. If there is any difficulty in getting non-creamy layer certificate and if the concerned MROs do not have the proforma of this certificate, Govt. is prepared to furnish it. In addition to this, district collectors would be given instructions not to delay in issuing BC-E and other certificates to Muslim candidates. He also told that there is enough time for the candidates to submit these certificates. They should obtain them within the stimulated time.

Mr. Mahmood Ali further told that 4% reservations would be implemented in case of Muslim candidates in filling up vacancies through Public Service Commission or any other recruitment board. He also told that implementation of 4% reservations for Muslims is beyond doubt and the Muslims should trust the government. He clarified that the strategy TRS Govt. had prepared for providing 12% reservations to Muslims was not practicable. Despite this, CM wants to provide 12% reservations for Muslims removing all the legal hurdles. Mr. Mahmood Ali informed that the Commission of Enquiry headed by Mr. G. Sudheer would submit its report within the stipulated time. After the submission of this report, BCs Commission would be formulated which would recommend reservations. TRS Govt. wants that by passing unanimous resolution in favour of reservations in Assembly, pressure should be exerted on the Central Govt. to include it in the IX Schedule of Constitution of India as was done by Govt. of Tamil Nadu.
