Muslim quota reduced from 4% to 3% in Telangana: Shabbir AliMuslim quota reduced from 4% to 3% in Telangana: Shabbir Ali

Hyderabad, Feb.9 (Hydnow): Former Minister Mohammed Ali Shabbir has alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a controversial statement on Telangana formation only to hide the injustices he has done with both the Telugu States of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

Addressing a press conference at Gandhi Bhavan today, Shabbir Ali said that it was ridiculous on the part of the Prime Minister to question the procedure adopted for passing the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act in the Parliament in 2013.

He said PM Modi spoke about developments which took place in 2013 when he was not even a Member of Parliament. He said instead of narrating an imaginative tale in his speech, Modi should’ve cross-checked the facts with the Parliament records.


He said that the Bill for formation of Telangana was debated in both the Houses of Parliament and it was passed as per the set Parliamentary norms and procedures.

Telangana Bill was passed by the Congress-led UPA Govt which believes in true democracy. Unlike BJP Govt, the Congress Govts never introduced a law or implemented any major decision without debating them in the Parliament.

Before targetting the CongressModi should explain as to why the BJP Government used the Parliament as a Bill-passing factory.


Several laws, including amendments to the Land Acquisition Act, Triple Talaq Bill and the Citizenship Amendment Act were passed without debate. Many decisions like demonetisation, abrogation of Article 370 and three controversial Farm Laws were passed without debate and without consulting anyone by the Modi Govt,” he said.

Shabbir Ali said Modi was not aware of the history of Telangana and the statehood movement. He is also not aware of how the Bill to create Telangana was passed. “He is only good at reading scripts of his speech. We seriously doubt whether the allegation of him having a fake degree is true.
