Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on Wednesday urged the Union government to double Haj quota for the Telangana state in view of the increased number of applications received to perform Haj pilgrimage in Mecca this year.

In a letter to Foreign Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, the Chief Minister said that the Centre has allotted only 2,532 Haj quota whereas the total number of applications received were more than 17,000.

He requested the Minister to increase the quota to 4,500 so that more number of applicants can perform Haj.
