BC Commission’s public hearing on Muslim quota end with 52,000 representations

Over 52,000 representations, both in favour and against the enhancement of reservation of socially and educationally backward classes of Muslims, were received by the Telangana State Commission for Backward Classes during the last six days of public hearing which concluded on Monday.

BC Commission chairman B.S. Ramulu informed that the representations include those sent through online mode. He said that the Commission would soon finalise its plan to conduct public hearings in all districts of Telangana State. He said that the Commission would not rely solely on the report prepared by the Sudhir Commission, but it would conduct its own research before submitting its report to the State Government.

Several leaders, including MLAs and representatives of different organisations, submitted their representation to the BC Commission on the last day of public hearing on Monday. They include TRS MLC Mohammed Saleem, TDP MLA R. Krishnaiah and ex-MP V. Hanumantha Rao.

Siasat Urdu Daily News Editor Amer Ali Khan submitted copies of nearly 45,000 representations received online. He advised the Commission not to prepare its report in haste. He said that the BC Commission’s report should withstand scrutiny in a court of law. (INN)
