Andhra Pradesh High Court Rejects Cancels religion based sub quota for minorities
Congress Government planned to create a sub quota for minorities.
The Centre had moved to provide a 4.5% sub quota to Muslims within the OBCs quota of 27%.
After that Public Interest litigation was filed in the Andhra Pradesh high court.
After listening the petitioner and his application the bench headed by Chief Justice Madan B Lokur had reserved its judgment.
On Monday AP high court struck down the office memorandum issued by the Central government creating a sub-quota for religious minorities out of the existing 27 per cent reservation for the other backward classes (OBCs).
The Bench, comprising Chief Justice Madan B Lokur and Justice PV Sanjay Kumar said that action of the Central government was based upon religious lines and not on any other intelligible consideration.
"There is no rationale or empirical data to justify such an action,"
The AP high court judgment is historic and excellent it again shows that government needs to study before making the laws and should not declare laws to win the elections.
