Newswatch: Modi okay with Muslim Reservation, claims KCR
KCR, at a government sponsored Iftar meet, last night, claimed that even Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not against reservations for Muslims. He assured that his party would fight with the Centre and definitely bring about 12 per cent reservations for Muslims in the state. Meanwhile, Telangana Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders claimed that it is not possible. There never has been such religion-based reservations in the country and even if Modi says ok, if the issue is against Supreme Court (SC) directives, it will be referred to a select committee of the Rajya Sabha (RS), they said.
