Hyderabad: Congress MP G Vivek on Saturday said that the backward communities would be major beneficiaries of the smaller states concept. He spoke at a seminar titled ‘Future of women and BC, SC, ST communities in New Telangana’ organised by Savitri Bhai Research Centre (SBRC) at the Osmania University library on Saturday. He emphasised that a great dedication was needed for implementation of SC, ST Sub- Plan in both Centre and State levels.

He alleged that the promotions of officials belonging to SC, ST communities were not implemented in accordance with law. He wanted maximum representation for women in legislative bodies in the new state. Speaking on the occasion, Prof Padmaja Shah called for an end to privatisation of education. She said that the downtrodden communities be provided with free education.

Saroja Vivek stressed on the need for empowerment of women through education. Speakers opined that the matriarchic society, which was found in Telangana region, be reconstructed in the new state. Because the culture of respecting women was destroyed in United Andhra Pradesh, they alleged. They felt that the women enjoyed remarkable status in the society. They opined the empowerment of women could be achieved only when a family was educated.

They demanded to allot the trespassed lands located in and around the city to SC, ST, BC and minorities. They exerted confidence stating that women and marginalised communities would witness significant development after the formation of Telangana state. They wanted more employment opportunities.

Jupaka Subhadhra, Gogu Shyamala, Sajaya, Prof Surepally Sujata, Dr Satya Lakshmi, Muzbir Rahman, student leader Krishank Manne and Warangal Ravi spoke. SBRC founders P Manjula, P Kavita and K Radhika including many women scholars and students of the university were present.
