Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, during ‘padayatra’, promised to work for social justice for the Backward Classes communities that are doing injustice to them after assuming charge, remarked TDP general secretary, Nara Lokesh.
After a two days break, on Tuesday Lokesh resumed padayatra and met the representatives of BCs at Maddayyappagaripalle in Thamballapalle. Lokesh said that BCs are appointed only to positions that do not have any power or funds.
Lokesh promised the Vaddera community that after TDP forms government all these quarries will be allotted to them and the welfare schemes will be revived. The TDP general secretary said that even the quantum of reservations for the BCs has been brought down by 10 percent from 34 percent and once the TDP is into power it will be revived and Boyas and Valmikis will be included in the ST list, he stated.
Lokesh also promised to bring in separate legislation for the security of BCs and far better schools will be established besides extending financial assistance for the community to pursue further studies abroad. The present condition of the State is that the debt burden is soon going to cross Rs 12 lakh crore, he stated and promised to clear all the pending bills once the TDP forms the government and steps will be initiated to improve the economic condition of the State.
