    I will not let rights of SCs, STs and OBCs be given away to Muslims: Modi

    Chinnappa Reddy commission report was basis for Muslim reservation: Siddaramaiah

    This was available even when there was a BJP government; Siddaramaiah

While addressing a rally in Telangana, PM Modi attacked the Congress for providing reservation on the basis of religion. “As long as Modi is alive, he will not let the rights of the SCs, STs and OBCs be given away to the Muslims in the name of reservations. We shall never allow religion-based reservations, as was resolved by the members of the Constituent Assembly while drafting the Constitution before 1950. Congress which came to power both in the Centre and in the state of combined Andhra Pradesh between 2004 and 2009 granted reservations to the Muslims overnight by snatching away the rights of OBCs,” he said.

Earlier, similar allegations were made on the Siddaramaiah led Karnataka government. Responding to the allegations, Siddaramaiah said, “In 1994, then Chief Minister Veerappa Moily on the basis of the recommendations of the Chinnappa Reddy commission decided to provide 4% reservation to Muslims. The order was passed in 1994 when Deve Gowda was the Chief Minister and I was the Finance Minister. This has been ongoing for 30 years. This was available even when there was a BJP government in 2008. The Basavaraj Bommai government attempted to provide reservation to the Lingayat and Vokkaliga community by denying 4% reservation to Muslims. This was challenged in the Supreme Court wherein Basavaraj Bommai submitted an affidavit the status quo will continue.”
