BC Welfare Minister Baswaraju Saraiah places long list of demands before Parl panel


Hyderabad, October 5 (INN): Minister for Backward Classes Welfare Baswaraju Saraiah has placed a long list of demands for consideration before the Parliamentary Committee for OBCs.

In his note on the issues pertaining to welfare of BCs, Baswaraju Saraiah demanded enactment of laws for protection of Backward Classes against the atrocities on the lines of SC, ST Atrocities Act. He pointed out that there was no specific Act to deal with the atrocities committed against the Backward Classes although the SCs and STs were protected under the Civil Rights Act and Specific Act of Prevention of atrocities (1989).

Therefore, he demanded that the Centre, in consultation with the Law Department, could bring a new legislation covering the social boycotts, rapes of women, calling by caste name and other atrocities committed on the Backward Classes.

In his note, the minister also demanded that the Centre take necessary steps to release all pending scholarships and fee reimbursement of BC students. He said that the State Government has already sent the proposals for adequate funds under the various schemes required for educational empowerment of Backward Classes. He also demanded enhancement of Centre's share in scholarships and fee reimbursement on par with the SC and ST students.

The Minister informed the Parliamentary Committee that Andhra Pradesh is one States in the country to sanction scholarships to all the pre-matric and post-matric BC students as a flagship programme. About 15 lakh BC students were covered with the budgetary provision of Rs 2400 crores last year. In the current year, Rs 2700 crores are projected to cover all the eligible Backward Class students to enable them to have access to quality education. Therefore, he demanded that the Centre besides increasing its share in the scholarships, release the funds pending for the last two years.

Saraiah also demanded Central funds for BC Hostels, total reimbursement of "diet" charges for the boarders of BC Hostels including provision for providing safe drinking water, bathrooms, toilets and funds for construction of hostel buildings.

The Minister also demanded a Sub-plans for BCs at the Central level on the lines of SC, ST sub-plan recently formulated by the Andhra Pradesh Government. "There is an imperative need to take up with the Planning Commission to create sub-plans for the Backward Classes specially the nomadic, semi-nomadic , most backward classes, artisan castes, service castes included in the list of backward classes. The Planning Commission should take up suitable appropriate measures for implementation and operation if sub-plan schemes with effect from 12th Plan period," he demanded.

Categorization of BCs, inclusion of 31 BC Castes of AP in the Central list, simplification of procedures for issue of creamy layer certificate, a separate ministry for the welfare of BCs or OBCs, reservations in promotions, BC quota in private sector, reservations in local bodies and inclusion of OBCs as Member of all the recruitment Boards and Public Sector Undertakings are among the other demands made by the minister.

The minister said that the largest section of the BCs population was hoping to get a better share in the socio-economic justice. He said that it has been the endeavor of the Central Government to bring the BCs on par with the other sections of society and accordingly take steps for their empowerment. Therefore, he requested the Parliamentary Committee on Welfare of OBCs to analyse all the demands made by him and take them forward to the concerned Ministries for favorable action.

Saraiah also requested the Parliamentary Committee to furnish an interim or special report to the Centre and concerned Ministries for taking up follow up action and to provide relief to the State of Andhra Pradesh on the issues raised by him.
