Hyderabad: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday alleged that the “Muslim reservations” in Telangana are an insult to the Constitution made by Dr B R Ambedkar.
AdvertisementAddressing a poll rally in Kumuram Bheem Asifabad district in Telangana, he said the reservation to Muslims is “unconstitutional” and it should not be allowed to be implemented at any cost. “But, both the BRS and Congress want to take the country towards a new division,” he alleged.
“Dirty game of appeasement politics can be seen in Telangana now. We have seen in Telangana to what extent a government can go to divide the society when the BRS government announces Muslim reservation,” Adityanath said. The “Muslim reservations” are part of a conspiracy to deprive the SCs, STs and BCs of their rights, he said adding this is an insult to the Constitution prepared by Ambedkar.

He accused KCR of failing to provide “water, funds and jobs”, the main plank of separate Telangana agitation. Terming BRS as “Bhrashtachar Rishwatkhori Samithi” the Uttar Pradesh chief minister said if the BJP is elected to power, it would officially celebrate ‘Hyderabad Liberation Day’ — September 17, 1948, the day the state under Nizam rule officially merged with the Indian Union. He said the country is progressing under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Telangana needs a “double engine” government.
