 A day after YSR Congress honorary president Vijayamma challenged TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu to allot 100 general Assembly segments to the backward classes (BCs) in the state, Congress senior leader and Rajya Sabha member V Hanumantha Rao said both TDP and YSRCP were vying with each other to project themselves as messiahs of BCs to grab power in the 2014 polls with their support.

 The two parties should implement their promises to the BCs from now itself if they had real love for them, he said at a press conference at Gandhi Bhavan here on Monday.

 "Let Naidu appoint a BC or an SC as his party's floor leader in the Assembly to prove his commitment towards those classes," Hanumantha Rao said.

 In fact, it was the Congress which had brought several laws for the social and political empowerment of BCs, Rao said.

 Rao said he would put in all efforts to persuade the Congress leadership to allot more seats to BCs in the 2014 polls.
