Hyderabad: News Editor of Siasat Urdu Daily, Mr. Amer Ali Khan demanded the Govt. of Telangana to enhance its budget to Rs. 5000 cr. which is in its purview and later start longer protest campaign initiative for providing 12% reservations. Mr. KCR should launch a struggle at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi or approach Supreme Court for reservations in order to fulfill the promise he made during the election campaign.
Mr. Amer Ali Khan was addressing a large gathering at Koratla on 24th February. He said that the Muslims should awake for getting their problems resolved. The situation in Gulf countries is also not favourable. More than one lakh persons are coming back from Gulf countries. Muslims cannot set right their economy without proper financial planning.
Referring to Triple Talaq and ban on beef, Mr. Amer Ali Khan told that these are the issues for which common citizens have no role to play. Although these issues are important, it is for the religious leaders to play a key role to get these issues resolved.
They should formulate a special strategy to influence public representatives so that they could echo their voice in the portals of Assembly and Parliament.

Mr. Vidya Sagar Rao, MLA of Koratla told that Mr. KCR is the Messiah of the Muslims. He applauded the welfare schemes formulated for the Muslims and said that Mr. KCR did the work which was not done during the past 60 years. TS is the only state which has a budget of more than Rs. 1000 cr. Mr. KCR is taking appropriate steps to protect Wakf properties and to get the Masajid repaired.
Mr. Ahmed Abdul Nayeem, Vice President of MPJ lamented that despite the lapse of four years, Mr. KCR did not fulfill his promise which is causing a lot of loss to the Muslims in the fields of education and employment.

If Muslims do not struggle for getting 12% reservation now, the future generation will not forgive them.
Continuing his address, Mr. Amer Ali Khan told that he has devoted himself to the cause of reservations. He stressed the need for the Muslims to sacrifice anything if needed.
