HYDERABAD: There was jubilation in the Congress party after the Supreme Court allowed the State government to implement 4 per cent quota for Muslims under BC-E category while taking up admissions into educational institutions.
It was a major relief for the party as the government was struggling hard to overcome the legal hurdles ever since the quota was challenged in the Andhra Pradesh High Court.
AP Congress Committee president D. Srinivas hailed the apex court’s order and said thousands of Muslim students would benefit from this. “The Congress government’s commitment and sincerity has once again been proved by the Supreme Court observations,” he added.
Cooperation Minister Md. Fareeduddin and Government Chief Whip N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, at a separate press conference, said it was celebration time for the Muslim community. Mr. Fareeduddin said the stalemate and confusion over the admissions was cleared after the Supreme Court verdict. He said the Muslim community would rally behind the Congress in the next elections for the rapid developmental and welfare programmes under taken by the government.
