Rampur (UP): Samajwadi Party on Thursday termed Congress' 4.5 per cent sub-quota for minorities as an "election gimmick".

"The quota within OBC quota policy is only an election gimmick as Congress is against Muslims," party general secretary Azam Khan told reporters here.

Hitting out at Congress for the Batla house encounter, he said it was clear after party leader Digvijay Singh's statement that "innocent students were gunned down in the fake encounter".

Singh had said in Azamgarh yesterday that he always believed that Batla House encounter was fake and had tried to get government and the Home Ministry to investigate the matter but could not succeed.
