Krishnaiah slams Chandrababu on BC Bill
HYDERABAD: Noted BC leader and TDP MLA Krishnaiah today alleged that TDP president and AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu was not supporting introduction of BC bill in the parliament.
Addressing the media here on Thursday, Krishnaiah said he would organize a three-day “Chalo Delhi” program from May 5 to 7 on BC issues to put pressure on the center for the bill.
He accused Naidu of failing to impress upon the center on the issue. Despite being an important ally of the BJP Government at the center, the TDP was not mounting pressure on the center in this regard, he said, adding that Naidu has been time and again going to Delhi and was not talking in favour of the BC bill.
“The BC bill should be introduced in Parliament to give 50 percent reservation to BCs in all legislatures across the nation”, he demanded. He also asked other parties to write a letter to the center to introduce BC bill.
Seeking reservations in employment, he asked Telangana Government to extend welfare schemes to the BCs in the State. He urged Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao to extend the welfare scheme of Kalyan Lakshmi and three acres land to poor BCs. (NSS)
