Government doesn't intend to pass quota bill: Omar Abdullah

Updated:1 month, 1 week ago IST

Jammu, Jan 08 (ANI): Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday urged citizens of the country to question the intention of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on presenting 10 percent quota to "economically weaker" sections from the general category. He also accused the ruling party for delaying the presentation of the bill in the Parliament, when it could have given it before. While addressing the gathering in Jammu, Abdullah said, “If they had intention to give reservation then would they have waited for 4.5 years? They actually don’t intend to give reservation because if they had then they would have given it earlier. Only after defeat in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Telangana, they remembered to give reservation after 4.5 years. If it doesn’t get passed in Parliament they'll say, we tried, but Parliament didn’t pass it. People have to use their mind in such situation and would have to think whether the intention of BJP is right.”
