Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao today said his government will take up the bill providing 12 per cent reservation to Muslims, passed by the state legislature, with the Centre for its nod.  “When I had a meeting with the Prime Minister, I told him that it was our (TRS’) election promise to give 12 per cent reservations to Muslims….the Assembly has already passed resolutions in this regard and it was sent to the Centre. He (PM) asked me to send it and promised to look into it positively,” said Rao, speaking at an Iftar gathering organised by the government here this evening.

“We will go to Delhi and take up this matter with the Central government and ensure its success (clearance). Or else, Telangana government will not keep quiet. This (reservation) is our right,” he said. The bill, passed by the Telangana legislature, increases reservations in jobs and education for backward sections of Muslim community to 12 per cent from the earlier four.

Earlier, speaking after laying foundation stone of Rs 20-crore Anees-ul-Gurbha Complex in Nampally area, the chief minister said his government accords utmost importance to education of Muslim children. The state government has set up 204 residential schools for underprivileged children from the Muslim community which will benefit 1.33 lakh students, he said. Anees-Ul-Gurbha, a shelter house, is functioning in Hyderabad since 1921.

    As long as people are not ready to compete and able to get employment with confidence, this type of politicians and politics will remain. Nation also remain stand still. Carpenters, barbers, painters, tailors etc who are not dependent on any quota or reservation are really very lucky, though they may be finding it difficult to make both ends meet. Reservation to such hard working community will be more productive than reservation based on castes.
