Muslim Quota Increased To 12 Percent
Written by: Madhuri - April 17, 2017
The Muslim quota which was earlier fixed at 4 per cent has today been increased to 12 per cent by the Telangana Assembly. The bill was passed today to give 12 per cent quota in educational institutions and government jobs for socially and economically backward Muslims.
The bill was passed by Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao who took the decision to increase the number of seats for Muslims. However, some of the BJP MLAs went against the decision and were suspended from Telangana Assembly.
The suspension was made when the Assembly speaker requested the BJP MLAs who were creating a ruckus at the well of the house, to go back to their respective seats.
The BJP stated that the bill passed is against the spirit of the constitution and called it unconstitutional. Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said the reservation on the basis of religion will create social turmoil and lead to the creation of another Pakistan.
However, Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu said, they were not opposing because Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao wants to implement the bill. He gave an instance saying that the party also opposed such move by late CM of Andhra Pradesh, Rajasekhara Reddy and present CM Chandrababu Naidu.
