Hyderabad: The Congress today approached the National Commission for Backward Classes demanding implementation of BC reservation in NALSAR University of Law.
AICC spokesperson Dasoju Sravan said, “The NALSAR University has been violating the law by not implementing the legally mandatory quota for students belonging to Backward Classes.” Sravan said in his petition submitted before National Commission for Backward Classes chairperson Bhagwan Lal Sahni in New Delhi on Tuesday. He also cited references of his letter to Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao wherein he complained of NASLAR University not implementing 85% quota for local students and also the response given by NALSAR justifying non-implementation of reservation policy.
With regard to the reservations for OBC / BC category, it is submitted that the State of Telangana, vide G.O. Ms. No. 3 dated 14.08.2014 & G.O. Ms. No. 16 dated 11.03.2015 (Refer Annexure 1 & 2) issued by the Backward Classes Welfare Department, adopted the list of 112 castes/ communities constituting the Backward classes as provided by the Member-Secretary, A.P. Commission for Backward Classes, and all the relevant Government orders pertaining to the said castes/communities and provide 29% of reservation in the following percentages in every educational institution. Thus, the University is not providing any reservation in favor of the Backward Classes despite the same being statutorily mandated by the aforesaid provisions of the state government, Sravan said.
The Congress leader hoped that the intervention of National BC Commission would help a large number of OBC students to pursue quality legal education and build an effective legal career in Telangana.
