As per reports, the caretaker CM was addressing a public meeting in Kagazangar in Komaram Bheem Asifabad. During his interaction with the people, a man stood up to ask him a question about the proposed 12% reservation to minorities.
KCR was seen replying to the man,”Baat karte baitho, baitho khamosh baitho” (I am speaking, sit silently).
He showed irritation when the man apparently did not sit down and went on to say, ” Cheptha kadha ra bhai, thondara endhuku padthunavu” (i am going to speak, why are you in such a hurry).
He further added, “baitho khamosh baitho. Bolraha hun na baitho, kya tumhare baap ko bolun kya baatein? (sit silently, I am telling you to sit, shall I tell your father?)
Some volunteers reportedly rushed towards the man asking questions but KCR stopped them.
KCR’s party TRS has long been promising 12% quota for Muslims in the state. He had recently announced in poll rallies that his party will give 12% reservation to Muslims and it is the NDA government at the centre which is obstructing the proposal.
BJP President Amit Shah had slammed KCR for his Muslim quota claim and stated that religion-based reservations are unconstitutional. He had added that as the SC had made it clear that there is a 50% ceiling on total reservations, KCR should make it clear that among the SC, ST and OBCs, from whose reservation cap his TRS government is going to carve out a quota for Muslims. He had added that the BJP will never allow a religion based quota in the country.
Telangana will go to polls on December 7.
