Hyderabad, Jul 4 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy today said the state government is committed to the welfare of the Backward Class (BC) communities and has taken up several welfare measures for their benefit.
Addressing a large gathering of the BC communities, who met the Chief Minister at the camp office to express their gratitude in connection with the recent inclusion of 10 communities in the BC list here, Dr Reddy said the Congress party could alone protect the interests of the BC communities in the state.
Stating that the government had taken up several welfare measures for the benefit of the BCs, he said the students from BC communities could pursue their professional courses without paying any fees.
He said the government had decided to include Nagaralu, Arava, Kurakula, Pondara, Samanthla, Saunita and Sountia communities in the BC list with a view to provide reservations for them.
Stating that the government had established 300 girls hostels in the state for the students of the BC communities and enhanced the mess charges only twice during the last four years, he asked them to educate their children by utilising these facilities.
