Kurnool: Rayalaseema Youth Foundation president Syed Shoaibuddin Khadri along with other members, today submitted memorandum demanding appointment of BC Commission to save Muslim reservation. The memorandum was submitted to Joint Collector of Kurnool.
It may be noted that in 2004, the then Congress Govt. led by Dr. Y.S.R. had issued a notification providing 5% reservation to Muslims but it was struck down by the Supreme Court when a petition was submitted to it in 2007. After this, the former Govt. provided 4% reservation to Muslims which is still in vogue. As per the constitution, the recommendation of BCs Commission is required for providing 12% reservations to Muslims. The then Govt. had not fulfilled this condition.
Vice President “Shaik Riyaz Basha” appealed to all the Muslim organizations to make representations on their letter pads to the concerned District Collectors, SPs, RDOs, MROs, MPs, MLAs and MLCs to increase pressure on the Govt.
