The population of Backward Class communities in Telangana is considerably higher. In fact they constitute a major chunk of the population, yet they have been ignored in almost all the walks of life including politics. BC classes complain of discrimination and being neglected for years but showed their willingness to support the TRS party believing a change would take place under TRS regime.
However, TRS has neglected the welfare of the BC communities to the extent that except few castes most of the BC communities have been on the recievig end.
No concrete steps were taken by the TRS government for the BC welfare so far. The BC welfare ministry has been waiting for the real justice and to experience the real fruits of Telangana formation as promised by the TRS party and government later.
The condition of BC welfare hostels across the state would alone be enough to reveal the sordid tale of negligence by the government. It is to be noted that TRS Government had allocated Rs. 2,022 Crore in 2014-15; Rs. 2,172 Cr in 2015-16 and Rs. 2,538 Crore in 2016-17 for the welfare of BCs. Although, not even 70% of allocated funds were spent in 2014-15 and 2015-16, the overall allocation was just Rs. 6,732 Crore in last three budgets. “The government has spent not even Rs. 5,000 crore for BCs.
Interestingly, TRS had repeatedly assured the BCs in state to introduce BC sub plan before elections, however this has not been materialized for the reasons best know to KCR.
