BCs, SCs, STs have heads held high under Jagan rule!

The YSR Congress party government in Andhra Pradesh led by chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy have made the Backward Classes, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes have their head held high with self-respect in the last three years.

This was asserted by state revenue minister Dharmana Prasada Rao, while kickstarting the bus yatra by 17 ministers with the slogan of “Samajika Nyaya Bheri-Jayaho Jagananna” at Srikakulam on Thursday.

The bus yatra has been taken up as a mark of completion of three years’ term by the Jagan government and to highlight the State Government’s initiatives on ‘social justice’ that provide equal opportunities for the BCs, SCs, STs, and minorities.

Dharmana said the Jagan government has taking steps to ensure that the weaker sections would be socially and politically empowered.

Apart from reaching out to these sections through a series of welfare schemes, the chief minister has gave them a lion’s share in political positions, he said.

He said for the first time after India attained independence, 74 percent of BCs, SCs, STs and Minorities were given berth in the State Cabinet and the Jagan government had created BC Corporations with 56 Chairmen and 672 Directors.

Of the total schemes, 82 percent of government schemes are given to BCs, SCs, STs, and minorities. There are few people who are disapproving of this move and this is equal to insulting SC, ST, BC, and minorities, he said. 

“Unlike in the past, no BC or SC or ST has to bow down to anybody, as the government is offering these schemes directly at their doorsteps. They are enjoying a life of dignity,” he said.

Dharmana said the government had brought many changes for the backward communities in the past three years and it would take these initiates further into the public and a message from Jagan Mohan Reddy.

The Bus Yatra would spread awareness among people about the State government’s efforts to uplift the downtrodden and creation of opportunities for them in all fields including governance.

The four-day Samajika Nyaya Bheri-YSRCP Bus Yatra will be taken out across the State between May 26 and 29, which starts from Srikakulam to Anantapur, highlighting the success of the YSR Congress Party’s social justice movement whereby it has given equal opportunities to the BCs, SCs, and Scheduled Tribes in the State Cabinet and other key administrative positions.

Around 17 MLAs, MLCs, and ministers from the BC, SC, ST, and minority communities would take part in the Yatra to highlight the initiatives undertaken by the YS Jagan Mohan Reddy government to strengthen the weaker sections.
