Muslim reservation unconstitutional, will end when BJP forms govt. in Telangana: Yogi

Hyderabad: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday came down heavily on the K Chandrashekar Rao government in Telangana and said that Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) stands for ‘Bhrashtachar’ (corruption) ‘Rishwatkhori’ (bribery) ‘Samithi’ (committee).
During an election rally in support of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidates in poll-bound Telangana a huge crowd enthusiastically welcomed the UP CM with saffron flags and chanting ‘Yogi-Yogi’.
Yogi asserted that the Muslim reservation policy in Telangana is unconstitutional and pledged to abolish it if the BJP comes to power.
Accusing Telangana CM KCR of “deception”, he pointed out unfulfilled promises, including commitments to ‘Nillu’ (water), ‘Nidhulu’ (money) and ‘Niyamagalu’ (employment) after assuming office. He said that while Congress made Hyderabad, the BJP aims to transform it into Bhagyanagar.
The UP CM urged support for BJP candidates Dr Palvai Harish Babu in Sirpur and Atmaram Naik in Asifabad, asserting that the KCR-led BRS government has fostered exploitation and anarchy in the state.
“This state is yearning for its rights. The dirtiest game of appeasement politics is going on in Telangana. The government can go to any extent to divide the society,” he said.
He said, “The BRS government conspired to deprive Dalits, the underprivileged, Scheduled Castes, Tribes, and Backward Castes of their rights by giving reservation to Muslims. This is an insult to the Constitution made by Bhimrao Ambedkar. Muslim reservation is anti-constitutional, hence it will end with the arrival of the BJP in Telangana. BRS and Congress want to take the country towards a new division. BRS, Congress and BSP share a similar mindset.”
Yogi sought votes in favour of BJP candidate Dr Vikas Rao in Vemulawada. While mentioning senior leader and former Governor Vidyasagar Rao, he said that during the prolonged movement for the creation of Telangana state from 1969 to 2014, the promise of providing ‘Nillu’ (water), ‘Nidhulu’ (money) and ‘Niyamagalu’ (employment) was a rallying cry.
He alleged that once in power, KCR failed to fulfill these commitments. “When Telangana was formed, it was a revenue-surplus state. Today Telangana is in debt of Rs 3 lakh crore. BRS is cheating farmers, youth, and women. Water has become a source of illegal money. With the wrong policies of the government, the youth are burdened with debt,” he said.
The UP CM held a vibrant road show in support of Marri Sashidhar Reddy from Sanathnagar, drawing a significant crowd. During the event, the CM emphasised the need for the BJP in Telangana, highlighting the transformation in UP since 2017, where curfews and riots are now a thing of the past.
