Popular Front of India a social movement working for the upliftment of the downtrodden communities demands the state government to implement the 12% reservation for muslims as promised by the Chief Minister of Telangana state during the election campaigns as well as in the party’s manifestos during general elections 2014.
We appreciate the concern shown by Shri K. Chandra Sekhar Rao Garu towards the muslim community assuring 12% reservation during the election campaigns as well as in the party’s manifesto. We do appreciate some actions carried after coming to power. However, despite being the fact that more than a year has passed since the formation of TRS government no feasible or affirmative actions were carried out toward the muslims reservation.
The Govt was able to get the social economic survey done in a matter of 2 days because of its firm stand, but its taking more than a year even for adopting necessary Constitutional Procedure as mentioned by the Different Court Judgments in the previous Cases on the reservation issue.
The Govt. appointed Commission to enquire about the Socio-Economic Condition on 3rd March 2015 is not compatible with the constitutional procedure and its recommendations may not be viewed by the court as authoriative if the matter ends up into court like it happens during the late Shri. Y.S. Raja Shekar Reddy Garu era.
We demand the government if it has a firm stand in providing practical 12% reservation to muslims to immediately appoint Backward Classes Commission and ask the Commission to review the States Reservation policy in coordination of SC and ST Commission as the proposed reservations will cross 50% cap and necessary data proof to overcome the cap as it is one of the mandatory variable other that comparative data proof of Muslim Backwardness with existing BCs, SCs and STs.
In this regards, Popular Front of India is organizing a month long campaign from Oct 7th to Nov 7th in order to aware the public of the facts and to pressure the government to provide 12% reservation with the due procedures.
The Poster for this campaign is released today by Janab Mohammed Abdul Ahad, State President ,Telangana ,Popular Front of India and Syed Shamshad Quadri president of All India Muslim Think Tank Association.
Memorandum submission, Postcard campaign, handbills, and other programs are planned to organize as part of the month long campaign.
