VH slams BJP on reservations, wants Sonia to address meeting to protect BC votes
Hyderabad: AICC secretary V Hanumantha Rao has made it clear that the Congress has the history of introducing reservations to the BCs in IIM and IITs.
Speaking to the media at Gandhi Bhavan here on Tuesday, VH said the reservations for BCs did not cross 27 percent even after 60 years. He alleged that the BJP was indulging in murky politics for the sake of votes and it was not sincere towards welfare of BCs.
VH alleged that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao was too indulging in politics for BC votes. Asking his party to remain alert in this regard, VH suggested that the Congress leaders see that the BC votes remain intact with the Congress. He advised the Telangana Congress leaders to organize a big public meeting of BCs and invite AICC Chief Sonia Gandhi to address.
VH also made it clear that the BCs will not get justice under BJP rule as the RSS wants abolition of reservations. Alleging that the BJP government was in the hands of RSS, VH slammed the KCR government for not celebrating birth anniversary of former chief minister Damodaram Sanjeevayya. He also deplored that ministers and officials failed to attend Sanjeevaiah birth anniversary celebrations. Forgetting Sanjeevaiah amounted to insulting the Dalits in the State. Earlier, VH paid floral tributes to Sanjeevaiah at his statue. –NSS
