Hyderabad: BJP national president Amit Shah, stating that his party was opposed to caste-based reservations, said it would not allow the 12 per cent reservation for Muslims since it would have a major impact on BCs.

Addressing party workers at a meeting at Exhibition Grounds along with party State president Dr K Laxman and other leaders, he said: “Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao should explain as to why he dissolved the State Assembly and sought early polls. KCR plans to make his son or daughter the Chief Minister, but it will not be possible,” he said, adding that the Chief Minister should explain, who would foot the bill for early elections in the State.

“The Center has given Rs 1.15 lakh crore to Telangana in four-and-a-half years period, out of which Rs 40,000 crore alone was sanctioned for development of road network in the State,” he said. He added the BJP would soon emerge as a major political power in the State.

Laxman said the State government had failed to fulfil the aspirations of the people. “Most of the assurancesmade by the TRS before the 2014 elections have still not been fulfilled,” he said.
