PM’s intervention sought for nod to quota Bill

Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Saturday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to get early assent of the President to a Bill passed by the Telangana legislature in April last year, which provided for reservations to SCs, STs, BCs and minorities in excess of 50%, the cap fixed by the Constitution.

the Governor had reserved the Bill for President’s assent as the matter was pending with the Home Ministry ever since it was passed by the legislature. Mr. Rao highlighted that the Supreme Court had not barred exceeding reservations beyond 50% if States made out a case showing compelling circumstances. Tamil Nadu had provided 69% reservation in this background.
