BC-Minister Says YSR Is Villian For BCs
Huge debate is going on in political circles about the future of BCs under Congress, TDP and YSR-Congress in the state. With each opponent showering new-offers for BCs, Congress is resorting to counter attacks now.
BC Welfare Minister Basavaraju Saraiah mentioned that YSR is a villain for all the BCs in the state. 'Post the death of YSR only I got this minister post. Before his death, it was all group and caste politics of him that prevented a post for me though I was an MLA from Warangal for five times', says Saraiah. He feels that YSR suppressed BC people while Kiran is a good saviour for them. 'We have sanctioned around 3000 crores in the last two years under CM's leadership to help BCs. Neither Naidu nor YSR has done this', he concludes.
With TDP and YSR-Congress taking BC Declaration as a major weapon for 2014 elections, Congress' severe counter is something to keep these two parties at bay. We have to see how BC lovers, Naidu and Vijayamma respond to this.
