Several Backward Classes associations have demanded that the State Government enhance the quota for BC communities from the existing 25% to 52% in proportion to their population along with the implementation of 10% reservation to economically weaker sections (EWS) among the upper castes.

A meeting of BC associations attended by 14 bodies held here on Sunday to discuss the government decision to extend 10% EWS quota to the poor among the upper castes.

President of National BC Welfare Association R. Krishnaiah sought to know how far it was justified to give only 25% reservation to BCs who comprise 52% of the population, when the government was planning to extend 10% quota to the poor among upper castes who comprised only 9%.

BC associations leaders G. Krishna, N. Venkatesh, T. Rajkumar, R. Chandrasekhar Goud, T. Ashok, Srinivas, M. Chanti, and B.C. Venkat attnded.
