Hyderabad: TRS supremo and Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao was playing “carrot and mouse” game on Muslim reservation issue for political mileage was exposed again, Leader of the Opposition in the Council Mohd Ali Shabbir, said today.
Reacting to Supreme Court verdict on the quota issue of Rajasthan State that all quotas for socially and economically backward classes should not cross the 50% barrier at any cost, Shabbir said at the media point that the “deception” of the TRS government was exposed again.
“It is clear that KCR had thrown Muslim quota carrot for getting votes during the last general elections and GHMC polls”, Shabbir said, adding that if the TRS chief was sincere to promote the Muslim community, he should issue a GO immediately for implementation of 12% reservation for Muslims as an Act has been passed in both the Houses of the Legislature.
He said the previous Congress government was sincere in providing five percent quota for socially and economically Backward Muslims and after Supreme Court’s intervention it had reduced it to 4 % which was implemented in education and jobs in then Andhra Pradesh benefiting thousands of Muslim youth. Shabbir Ali asked how KCR can provide 12% reservation to the Muslim community when Prime Minister cannot implement reservation more than 50% in the BJP-ruled States. (NSS)
