CM KCR advocates collective decision on BC welfare

Hyderabad: In a novel initiative, Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on Sunday invited elected representatives belonging to Backward Classes (BC) communities from all political parties to help him formulate strong policies and schemes to lay a strong foundation for development and welfare of BCs in the State. He asked them too consult all stakeholders over the next three-four days and submit a report to the State government with recommendations for improving living standards of BCs and to help take a collective decision.

“There shall be no politics in the matter as every BC public representative wants development and welfare of the BCs. The government is not going to claim any credit. But let us tell people that it is a collective effort of all the parties and send a positive message to them,” Chandrashekhar Rao said. He expressed his readiness to issue government orders, amend existing laws and bring in new ones based on recommendations made by BC public representatives from different political parties for upliftment of BCs.

The Chief Minister made the announcement during his inaugural address of the all-party meeting of BC MPs, MLAs and MLCs convened at the Committee Hall of the State Legislative Assembly to discuss measures to be taken for BC welfare and development. He also requested the State Legislative Assembly Speaker S Madhusudhana Chary to allocate one full day during next legislative session to discuss the recommendations made by BC public representatives.

“Plan schemes for BCs after discussing with all stakeholders especially the BC organisations and prepare a report with recommendations for improving existing schemes or formulating new policies. We will have a day-long debate in the Assembly based on these recommendations and take necessary policy decision to implement them,” Chandrashekhar Rao said. The State government, he said, was ready to implement all measures within its purview for development of BCs including reservations for BCs in the local bodies and also in land allotments made for entrepreneurs by the Telangana State Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (TSIIC).

Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao announced that he will lead an all-party delegation to New Delhi to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and exert pressure for an enactment in the Parliament to accord reservations to BCs in State Legislative bodies. The Telangana State Legislative Assembly and Council had already passed a resolution for BC reservations in the Legislatures and would request the Centre in this regard, he said.

The issue came up for discussion during the all-party meeting of BC public representatives at the State Assembly on Sunday. The Chief Minister said that all political parties wanted reservation for BCs in the legislatures and the State government would pitch for this demand before the Centre. The State government would also demand establishment of a separate BC Welfare Ministry at the Central level and also implement reservations for BCs in government job promotions.
