Will restore Muslim quota in Karnataka, if elected : Congress

D.K. Shivakumar, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President

Bengaluru (Karnataka) – After the ruling BJP in Karnataka scrapped the 4% quota for Muslims, Congress has assured that ‘this quota will be restored if it comes to power’.

On the Karnataka Government’s decision, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said, “There is no law in the Constitution to give reservation based on religion”. Regarding this, D.K. Shivakumar, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President, has claimed that Government’s decision is unconstitutional. Shivakumar also said, “The BJP Government thinks that reservation can be distributed like a property. But reservation is not a property but a right. We do not think that the 4% reservation for minorities should be abolished and given to the major communities. The minorities are our brothers and family members”.

Editorial Viewpoints

  • As per the Constitution, no one can be given reservation based on religion. It means, Congress will give this reservation unconstitutionally.
  • Since 2014, the citizens have ousted Congress which is full of sycophants of Muslims from power in Centre and many States. Congress has still not realised it. This means, when doom is near, the intellect makes wrong decisions !
