Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu said, Minority Reservations would divide the country, it will lead tension among various castes, it will also lead to the creation of another Pakistan.
Venkaiah Naidu while addressing at Dr B R Ambedkar Jayanthi Celebrations said Ambedkar was against reservations based on religion. There are poor people among the Muslims. If they are socially, educationally and economically backward, there should be the reservation, but not as a religion, said Union Minister.
BJP strongly supports reservations of backwardness but not on religion basis. BJP is not just opposing Muslim reservation because Telangana CM K.Charashkar Rao has proposed, Earlier When Rajashekar Reddy and Charandrababu Naidu tried the same, BJP strongly opposed them.
He clearly mentioned that BJP is against communal reservations which will demand another partition of the country and creation of another Pakistan.
He said BJP will lend support to the ruling TRS government in Telangana if it gives reservation on the basis of social, educational or economic backwardness.
