Government to move SC against quota decision
New Delhi, May 29 (IANS) The central government Tuesday said it will move the Supreme Court against the decision of the Andhra Pradesh High Court quashing the 4.5 percent sub-quota for the minorities carved out of the 27 percent reservation for other backward classes in jobs.
Law and Justice Minister Salman Khurshid told reporters here that the government will move the apex court as early as possible after consulting its law officers.
He said the government would "go to Supreme Court by way of SLP (special leave petition) against the pronouncement of Andhra Pradesh High Court".
The Andhra Pradesh High Court had Monday quashed the 4.5 percent sub-quota for the minorities carved out of the 27 percent reservation for other backward classes (OBC) in jobs.
A division bench of Chief Justice Madan B. Lokur and Justice P.V. Sanjay Kumar set aside the office memorandum (OM) issued last December by the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government to provide the sub-quota to minorities.
