Muslim minorities under the banner of the District Congress Minority Department took out a rally here on Thursday, demanding the government to immediately implement 12 per cent reservation for minority youths in education and employment.

Addressing the rally, the department chairman, Sumeer Ahmed, said that TRS during electioneering assured that it would fulfil its promise within four months of it coming to power.

However, two years have passed since it assumed power, but it has remained silent till today, he said.

Mr. Ahmed said that scores of educated youth were looking forward to the fulfilment of the promise as they would benefit once it was came into effect.

“Therefore, there is an urgent need to constitute a BC Commission to look into the demand,” he said.

District Congress Committee president Taher bin Hamdan, Congress minority leaders M. Quddus and Nazeeb Ali, and party town president Kesa Venu participated in the rally.
