Telangana BC Commission chairman BS Ramulu said that Telangana State Backward Classes Commission is putting in all efforts to develop backward castes socially, politically and economically. He recently toured various mandals of Nizamabad and Kamareddy districts and got people from BC community registered.

During the morning sessions, the BC Commission chairman visited Morthad, Timmapoor, Yergatla and Talla Rampur villages of Morthad mandal, while in the afternoon he visited the district Collector’s office. He said that BCs and MBCs are facing many issues in the society. He mentioned that it was Dr BR Ambedkar who fought to provide them a better place in the society.

Ramulu shared that Telangana State has more than 50 per cent BC population, but they have only 27 per cent reservations which is not sufficient for them. He informed that Telangana government has plans to start BC residential schools at all Assembly Constituencies.

“Telangana government wants to strengthen the BCs, economically,” he added.
Ramulu said that Telangana government is striving to provide 12 per cent reservations to the minorities as well. DRO Padmakar, BC Welfare Officer Vimala Devi and other officials participated in the programme.
