    Mahabubnagar: The BC Samaj State secretary, M. Srinivas Sagar, expressed concern over the lack of representation for BC (Backward Classes) community leaders in the ruling Congress party. Sagar demanded that the government provide BCs with representation in line with their population ratio. He highlighted the disparity in political and nominated posts representation.

    Despite BCs making up over 50-55 percent of Telangana’s population, they receive less than 10 percent representation in politics. In contrast, the forward class community, which makes up 10 percent, enjoys 80 percent political representation. Sagar emphasized the need for major political parties to appoint BC leaders as party presidents to ensure adequate representation.

    Sagar criticized the Congress party for not prioritizing BCs under Chief Minister Revanth Reddy from the Reddy community. He pointed out discrimination in the allocation of nominated posts, promotions, and representation in the Council of Ministers since the Congress party came to power.

    The BJP had previously committed to appointing a BC as Chief Minister if they came to power. Sagar urged the BJP to honor this promise by immediately declaring a BC candidate as the state president. He cited the example of Santhi Kumar, a strong BC leader and RSS supporter, who could have won a significant majority and become a Union Minister if allocated a seat in Mahabubnagar.

    Sagar criticized the TRS party, describing it as a family-ruled party on the brink of disappearing. He suggested this was an opportune moment for the TRS to transform into a party of the people by prioritizing BCs. Sagar warned that neglecting BCs and making wrong decisions could have consequences for major parties in future local body elections.
