Andhra body to submit report on Muslims' reservation

Hyderabad: The newly appointed chairman of the backward classes commission in Andhra Pradesh has promised to submit a report on reservations for Muslims "as expeditiously as possible". D. Subrahmanyam told newsmen he would submit the report to the government as directed by the Andhra Pradesh High Court. "We will give top priority to the issue and if necessary we will submit an interim report," said Subrahmanyam, who was accompanied by three other members of the commission.

The commission, which was constituted after a gap of seven years, has the power to recommend the inclusion or exclusion of different castes and sub-castes in the list of backward classes for the purpose of providing reservation.

Subrahmanyam, a retired judge of the Andhra Pradesh High Court, said the commission would study the judgment and decide on the procedure to be adopted to collect information about the socio-economic conditions of Muslim community.

The commission was constituted following the high court direction. While quashing a state government order providing five percent reservation for Muslims in education and jobs, the court had on Sept 21 directed the government to reconstitute the backward classes commission in three months and seek its opinion for including Muslims in the list of backward classes. The court also asked the commission to give its opinion within six months.
When asked about this, Subrahmanyam said: "We will give our report within this time."
