BJP chief Amit Shah Sunday attacked the state govenment's proposal to give 12 per cent quota to Muslims, saying his party will never allow it as religion-based reservation is unconstitutional. Shah hit out at TRS chief and Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao over the issue during campaign rallies ahead of the December 7 Assembly polls in the state. Shah had further said that Rao promised reservation to the minority community ""despite being aware"" of the 50 per cent ceiling and forwarded the proposal (bill) to the Centre.
