KCR cant target Modi on reservations, the issue is constitutional
The TRS MPs staged protest in parliament demanding centre to keep the Telangana reservation act in the ninth schedule of the Constitution to avoid judicial scrutiny. The Telangana government proposes quota over and above fifty percent limit laid down in several judgements of Supreme court.
KCR plans to rally other regional parties to prevail upon the center to allow the states to have reservations over and above the fifty percent. Telangana CM refers to higher share of population of OBCs,SCs and STs to justify his demand. But, Modi government has taken a principle stand that it would abide by the 50 percent limit laid down by the Supreme court in several of its judgments. The fight of the regional parties could only end up in a political blame game to put center in the dock as the apex court has already made sound constitutional rationale for fifty percent limit on reservations.
