Telangana Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president, Lakshman, at a press meet condemned the lowering of Backward Classes (BCs) quota in the upcoming Panchayat polls. At a recent meeting, party leaders condemned the injustice to BCs by the State. While 2,000 and odd villages have been separated as they have 100 per cent tribal population, reservations have been given only to the remaining 10,000 and odd panchayats in the State. The BJP is now demanding that all villages be included and normal reservations for the BCs.
