Don`t read much into SC order in quota case: Cong

Congress on Monday said there was "nothing unusual" in the Supreme Court`s refusal to stay the Andhra Pradesh High Court order quashing 4.5 per cent sub-quota for minorities.



New Delhi: Congress on Monday said there was "nothing unusual" in the Supreme Court`s refusal to stay the Andhra Pradesh High Court order quashing 4.5 per cent sub-quota for minorities in central educational institutions.

"I have not read the Supreme Court order.... It tells petitioner for more material. There is nothing unusual about it. Nothing much should be read into it", party spokesman Manish Tewari told reporters.

In the case, the apex court expressed its "unhappiness" that the Centre was blaming the High Court when it had itself failed to produce documents to support its case.

A Bench of justices K S Radhakrishnan and J S Khehar was critical of the Ministry of Human Resource Development rushing to the apex court with the appeal against the May 28 order of the High Court without documents to justify the policy of carving out 4.5 per cent sub-quota within the 27 per cent OBC reservation.
