HYDERABAD: TDP will launch its State-wide “Balaheena Vargala Samkshema Yatra” on Friday to highlight the pathetic condition of SC, ST , BC students in welfare hostels.

Over a dozen leaders including T. Devender Goud, Kadiam Srihari, K. Pratibha Bharathi and M. Narsimhulu will visit these hostels beginning with those in Mahabubnagar and Nalgonda district from November 2 to 5.

At a press conference here on Thursday, party leaders, Mr. Srihari and Mr. Varla Ramaiah said the Government allocated only Rs. 4,000 crore to the welfare of weaker sections in the Rs. 81,000 crore State budget. It worked to just four p.c. while the National panel for SCs and STs recommended allocation in proportion to their population.
