The team of BC leaders who met Congress president include BC-JAC chairman Neeradi Bhupesh Sagar, Keshavulu and others.
Musheerabad: A team of BC leaders led by national vice-president of BC Welfare Association Gujja Krishna met AICC president Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi on Monday and submitted a memorandum with their demands such as passing of a Bill in Parliament to provide 50 percent reservations in legislative bodies, reservations in promotions and a separate ministry for the BCs. The team of BC leaders who met Congress president include BC-JAC chairman Neeradi Bhupesh Sagar, Keshavulu and others.
Speaking on the occasion, Gujja Krishna said that BCs who constitute more than 50 per cent of total population, do not represent even 5 per cent in legislative bodies and 7 per cent in government employees even after 71 years of independence. There was a need for a separate ministry at the Centre representing 70 crore BCs, he added.
