TDP state president calls out AP CM YS Jagan on BC empowerment

Vastavam web: TDP state president K Atchannaidu said that having made huge promises at the time of elections, Chief Minister Y S Jagan mohan Reddy started ‘betraying’ the backward classes in all respects after coming to power in Andhra Pradesh. Atchannaidu accused the Chief Minister of turning ‘social justice’ upside down in the past 19 months by giving far less nominated and advisor posts to the BCs who constituted more than 50 per cent of the state’s population.

In a statement here, the TDP leader said that the YSRCP government gave 672 directors’ posts in the BC corporations but they were not given powers or funds. Whereas, by cutting down reservations in the local and civic bodies, the BCs had lost over 16,800 posts in civic and local bodies that had both powers and funds. Atchannaidu said that by cutting down local body posts, Jagan Mohan Reddy had distanced the BCs from positions of power out of sheer political considerations. The YSRCP regime had totally ignored the BCs, who constitute more than 50 per cent of the population, while a lion’s share of the top posts with power and funds were given to the Chief Minister’s own caste.
