State of Andhra Pradesh is witnessing BC game by all political parties and when the game was about to reach climax, honorable High Court intervened suspecting foul play in the whole game and ordered time out. It all started with TDP chief promising 100 tickets to BCs in the next elections. Just when all BC leaders started felicitating Naidu, YSRCP leader Vijayamma called for 100 seats for BC’s in the state assembly. BCs suddenly started drifting towards her when Cong after taking on Babu by promising 200 party tickets, made a ‘U’ turn with its chief Botsa Satyanarayana promising seats according to their population.
In the same fervor Congress Govt planned to take on entire opposition in local Panchayat Raj elections promising more seats for BCs. However HC poured cold water on Congress Govt plans and also on the aspirations of all political parties by ordering reservations should not cross 50% at any cost. According to HC orders there will be cut in BC reservations by more than 10 percent. Court asked Govt to submit report to election commission and then proceed with elections in 3 months time. This now put Govt in a bind and gave another ammunition to opposition parties.
Already BCleaders and its unions are up in arms and warned they wont take any reduction in their reservations. It has to be seen where this BC political game leads to.
