Hyderabad: In an apparent attempt to buy time before bringing in legislation for 12 pc Muslim reservations, Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has reportedly directed the BC Commission to tour more districts and collect representations from the people before submitting its report. BC Commission is the statutory body for recommending increase or decrease of reservations to particular sections.
This move will serve as a roadblock introducing the Muslim Reservation Bill in the forthcoming Budget session.
It must be recalled that, during a debate on the Muslim quota Bill, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao had announced that the Bill would be tabled in the Budget session.
However, according to sources CM has asked the BC Commission to conduct public hearings in all districts of the state to get more representations on the issue.
Sources said that CM intends to bring fool proof legislation which should withstand legal scrutiny hence he had directed BC Commission to conduct hearings in all districts if necessary to study the issue before coming out with an official report.
