The  dawn of Wednesday came as a shock to the central government as well as to the politicians advocating religion based reservation as theSupreme Court on Wednesday turned down the central government’s plea to suspend the operation of the Andhra Pradesh High Court verdict quashing 4.5 percent sub-quota reservation for religious minorities.

An apex court bench of Justice K.S. Radhakrishnan and Justice J.S. Khehar, declining to stay the Andhra Pradesh High Court order, said the 4.5 sub-quota for religious minorities set aside in the office memorandum in December 2011 within the overall 27 percent reservation for the Other Backward Classes was not “in conformity with Article 15 of the Constitution”.
