State BC Welfare Union president R Krishnaiah who tends to be pro Jagan supporting Jagan in every issue at last turned his table seeing some sincerity in Chandra Babu’s statements. He has charged that Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy is trying to suppress the Ministers of Backward Classes in his cabinet to save his post and foisting them in false cases.
Speaking to the media persons at the Government Guest House in Kurnool the BC leader demanded the Centre to provide 50 in proportion to their population in the state.
Recalling failure of Congress promise to allot 50 per cent nominated posts to BCs during elections in 2004, Krishnaiah said that he is ready to support any party that gives importance to the BCs. Telugu Desam gave assurance of allocating 100 tickets to BCs in elections and a sub plan with Rs 10,000 crore for their welfare while YSR Congress vowed to send 100 BC legislators to the Assembly, he said.
BC Welfare Union State general secretary Nakkalamitta Srinivasulu, BC Student Union State president Ryaga Ramesh, BC Union leaders Rambabu, Anand, Patnam Rajeswari and others participated in the meeting.
