Telangana Assembly passes bill to hike Muslim quota to 12%

Telangana

Hyderabad: The government of K Chandrasekhar Rao in Telangana has increased quota in jobs and education for Muslims from 4 per cent to 12 per cent fulfilling its pre-election promise.

The BJP has opposed the move and BJP’s five members in the assembly were suspended after they tried to stall the proceedings.

Another hike in quota – from 6 per cent to 10 per cent for Scheduled Tribes – was part of the same bill, which was passed on Sunday at a special session of the assembly. The proposed quota hike takes reservations from the present 50 per cent to 62 per cent in Telangana.
