In Kumuram Bheem Asifabad district, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath criticized the move to introduce “Muslim reservations” in Telangana, saying that it is an affront to the Constitution crafted by Dr. BR Ambedkar.
Adityanath claimed that such reservations were part of a larger conspiracy to undermine the rights of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, and Backward Classes.
Addressing the gathering, Yogi Adityanath accused the ruling BRS government in Telangana of playing a “dirty game of appeasement politics.”
He said, “We have seen in Telangana to what extent a government can go to divide the society when the BRS government announces Muslim reservation.” Adityanath argued that the move was detrimental to social harmony and an insult to the constitutional principles laid out by the founding fathers.
Labelling the proposed reservations as “unconstitutional,” the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister pledged that if the BJP is elected to power in Telangana, the party would abolish religion-based reservations and redirect the benefits to Other Backward Classes (OBCs), Scheduled Castes (SCs), and Scheduled Tribes (STs).
Taking aim at Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, Adityanath accused the state government of betraying the trust of the youth, farmers, and women by failing to fulfil its electoral promises.
He claimed that KCR’s administration had neglected key issues such as water supply, funding, and job creation, which were central to the separate Telangana agitation.
Yogi Adityanath referred to the BRS as “Bhrashtachar Rishwatkhori Samithi” and asserted that if the BJP comes to power, it would officially celebrate ‘Hyderabad Liberation Day’ on September 17—the day the state, under Nizam rule, officially merged with the Indian Union.
Adityanath said that the country is progressing under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Telangana needs a “double engine” government.
