State Government to move to Apex Court on High Court verdict on Muslim reservation

Attorney General, Solicitor General to argue the case


The State Government has decided to file a petition in the Supreme Court praying for a stay on or suspension of the AP High Court orders that quashed the four percent reservation to Muslims. The government also decided to get attorney general and the solicitor general to argue the case in the Supreme Court on its behalf.

The Chief Minister, K Rosaiah, after a high level meeting with the ministers, officials and public representatives from various political parties and Muslim organizations, told the media on Tuesday that those who had availed the benefit of reservation should not face any trouble on account of High Court verdict. The Chief Minister said that the State government was committed to four percent reservation to Muslims. He said that the government will file the petition in the Supreme Court immediately.

Nearly 8,000 Muslim students who had secured seats in educational institutions in the BC-E category are not affected. Apart from them, a few vacancies in the government were filled with those who were eligible for reservation in BC-E category. Now, with the High Court verdict, their fate hangs in the balance. Officials are examining all possibilities of challenging the High Court orders and provide reservation to backward class Muslims. According to a senior official in law department said that even if the Apex Court upheld the High Court orders, those already enjoying the benefits would not be affected.
