TRS govt warned not to tinker with BC quota
Various BC bodies suspect a move to cut BC reservations from 34% to 26%
Vidyanagar: Various BC associations have demanded that state government not reduce the reservations for BCs in the forthcoming municipal polls. They held a meeting here at BC Bhavan on Thursday.
