Majlis Member of Parliament (MP), Asaduddin Owaisi stoutly opposed the Bill to give 10 per cent reservations to Economically Backward classes in general quota. He raised several questions to say why he is opposing the Bill. Stating that the Bill was against the Constitution, he said that there is no empirical evidence to prove economic backwardness of some of the castes, like Savarnas. He said that Telangana has already framed a proposal to give12 per cent reservations to Muslims, which has empirical evidence. But this was ignored by the Centre, he said. Finally, he stated that the Bill will be struck down by the Courts of Law.
