Hyderabad: A day after Andhra Pradesh High Court quashed four per cent reservations for Muslims in educational institutions and jobs, the state government on Tuesday decided to file an appeal in the Supreme Court.

"We are going in for an appeal in the Supreme Court against the High Court judgment which struck down reservations for Muslims yesterday. We are sincere about extending the reservation benefit to Muslims," Chief Minister K Rosaiah told newsmen after a high-level review meeting on the issue here.

The Chief Minister said the government would take all steps to ensure that Muslim students who availed of the reservation facility so far were not affected by the High Court verdict.

Minister for Minorities Welfare Ahmedullah Syed, Chief Secretary S V Prasad, Advocate General D S R Murthy and other officials attended the meeting.
