SP leader Azam Khan demands that 5% out of 10% quota for the poor be reserved only for Muslims


JANUARY 8, 2019

Azam Khan said that Muslims should have been given reservations in the past and it is too late now to offer them any reservation.

The decision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to provide 10% reservation in jobs and higher education for the unreserved poor and underprivileged section seems to have put the opposition parties on the back foot ahead of the general elections.

After getting caught off guard, Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan has now demanded that the government should reserve five percent to Muslims out of the proposed 10% reservation promised for the people belonging to the economically weaker section, reported Zee News.

According to the reports, controversial leader Azam Khan questioned the Modi government on the new reservation policy stating that the BJP government decided to bring in the new policy after it suffered losses in the recent assembly elections. Questioning the Modi government, Azam Khan asked that how much quota will be provided for the Muslims in the new reservation policy.

“If there is no thought about providing reservations for the second largest population of this country in this new policy, then what does this reservation mean? Once again, the Communal card is being played at the time of the election. This is not a masterstroke, we demand that we should be given 5% to give preferential treatment to us,” said Azam Khan.

Azam Khan said that Muslims should have been given reservations in the past and it is too late now to offer them any reservation. Interestingly, Azam Khan asked Muslims to be put in the Scheduled Caste category as the conditions of Muslims in this country have not improved.
