AP govt to move SC over reservations for Muslims: CM
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
Minister for Minorities Welfare Ahmedullah Syed, Chief
Secretary S V Prasad, Advocate General D S R Murthy and other
officials attended the meeting.
