Congress to launch movement for 12% Muslim quota

Congress MLC Farooq Hussain on Tuesday informed that the Congress party would launch a movement across Telangana State to get 12% quota for Muslims in jobs and education, as promised by the TRS Government in its election manifesto.

Speaking to media persons in Assembly premises, Farooq Hussain said that the Sudhir Committee constituted by the State Government was an eye wash as its recommendations bear no legal sanctity. He said that the Congress leaders would submit representations to Collectors, MROs and RDOs across the Telangana State demanding 12% reservation for Muslims. He said all MPs and legislators of Congress party would actively participate in the movement.

Farooq Hussain also informed that the Congress Legislature Party, which met here on Tuesday, passed a resolution to express condolences over death of Haj pilgrims due to crane collapse in Holy Makkah. He said that the State Government should provide assistance to the families of those killed in that tragedy. (INN)
