BCs to float party in TS, AP

Vijayawada: The BC conclave sent clear signals that a third alternative would emerge in the two Telugu states and it would contest the elections in 2019. Announcing this here on Wednesday, BC Welfare Association national president and TDP MLA R Krishnaiah said this would help in sending more number of BCs to the Assembly and Parliament. “So far, all political parties have been using them as vote bank and were neglecting them after coming to power.
This can’t be allowed any further. We have to wrest power,” Krishnaiah said as the BCs cheered him. The political ambitions of the weaker sections in the state are spreading across the two Telugu states.
There is a need in both the Telugu states to start a third political alternative that would represent the majority people. Two or three dominant upper castes are ruling the Telugu states, while majority people representing the BCs, SCs, STs and minorities have no voice, he said.
