HYDERABAD: Political leaders and representatives of Backward Classes
(BC) organisations would be conducting a conference on August 28 at
Jubilee Hall, Public Gardens in the city on their demand that the
state and central governments draw up a 'special component plan' for
the development of Other Backward Classes (OBCs).
"The BCs have been ignored by the government in providing reservations
and other benefits.
The BC organisations plan to discuss extensively the problems of BCs
during the conference," said Prof Murali Manohar, chairman of Mahatma
Jotirao Phule Academy of Backward Caste Development and Empowerment.
Senior BJP leader Bandaru Dattatreya, TDP leader Tulla Devender Goud,
TRS legislature party leader Etela Rajender and professors and
students from different universities would be attending the
Speaking at a press conference here on Thursday Murali Manohar said
that in the past 67 years of independence, the trend is only a few BC
communities are getting the government benefits which are meant for
all BCs.
He suggested that BCs should be issued special funds for their
development according to their population in the state.
Prof Kancha Ilaiah said that 48 per cent of the population in the
state is BC but the reservation for them is only 28 per cent in
education, employment and other government schemes.
He added that in 2010-11, an annual budget of `15,000 crore was
announced by the government for development of BC communities, but
only `4,000 crore was used to build BC welfare hostels
