Two days after adopting a Bill to ensure funds meant for SCs and STs are not diverted to others, the Government is now considering to introduce similar sub-plans for people from Backward Classes and minorities, Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy announced here on Tuesday.

While the erstwhile government had spent about Rs.1,500 crore for the welfare of the BCs in the State, the Congress government had spent over Rs.2,000 crore last year alone and plans are afoot to enhance the amount to Rs.3,000 crore this year, he said while addressing a public meeting.
