Not befooled Muslims on issue of quota, says Azam Khan

Refuting allegations that he had befooled Muslims on the issue of quota, Uttar Pradesh Parliamentary Affairs Minister Azam Khan on Tuesday said Samajwadi Party never promised 18 per cent reservation to them.

“Samajwadi Party never promised 18 per cent reservation to Muslims in its 2012 assembly poll manifesto...Reservation can be given only after amending the Constitution and unless that is carried out, not even 0.8 per cent reservation can be given to the minorities,” Khan said in the state Assembly.

He was replying to Leader of Opposition Gaya Charan Dinkar’s charges while speaking on admissibility of his adjournment notice on law and order situation.
