- No rule of reservation for OBCs in government jobs, alleges Anna Ramachandraiah

Later, BC Sangharshana Samithi leader Anna Ramachandraiah Yadav stated that all the successive governments have neglected the OBCs development. Even, rule of reservation is not being implemented properly in government jobs for OBCs, he charged.
YSRCP leader Sakam Prabhakar mentioned that OBCs should unite first without any personal agendas, then only OBCs fight for political reservation will become success. Later, Intellectual forum member Dr B Sukumar stated that SC, ST and OBCs should come together to fight for their rights.
