Rise of Muslim reservation in Telangana state from 4% to 12% becomes a burning point between parties

A Bharatiya Janata Party leader in Telangana has warned that if Muslims are provided quota in jobs and education, a Yogi will emerge in this state too. N.V.S.S. Prabhakar, a member of Telangana state legislative assembly, cautioned the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government against going ahead with its proposal to increase Muslim reservation from the current 4 percent to 12 percent.

“If Muslims are provided with the quota, another Yogi will emerge in Telangana,” he said in an obvious reference to Yogi Adityanath, the hardline Bharatiya Janata Party leader who took over as UP CM this week. Prabhakar alleged that the Telangana Backward Classes Commission is doing injustice to the BCs by working for the minorities. He was referring to the survey being done by the BC Commission on socio-economic conditions of Muslims.

The Bharatiya Janata Party has already threatened to launch a statewide agitation if the Telangana Rashtra Samithi government goes ahead with its plans to provide quota to Muslims in proportion to their population. Bharatiya Janata Party’s state president K. Laxman argued that quota on the basis of religion is against the Constitution. He recalled that the courts struck down the reservation for Muslims in the past.

CM K. Chandrasekhar Rao has announced that bills to increase the quota for Muslims and SCs will be introduced during the ongoing Budget session of the state assembly. As the move will take the overall quota in the state beyond the permissible limit of 50 percent, the state government plans to approach the Centre with a request to include the two legislations in the 9th Schedule of the Constitution as was done in the case of Tamil Nadu.
