HYDERABAD: Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who has been implementing novel welfare schemes for the Backward Classes (BCs), is all set to hold a key meeting with lawmakers belonging to weaker sections here on Sunday.  Though the date of the meeting was decided several days ago by the chief minister himself, as it is being held against the backdrop of Andhra Pradesh Assembly passing a bill providing 5 per cent reservations to Kapus in that state in the run-up to the next elections, all eyes are on the Sunday’s meeting to be presided over by Rao. 

Sources said, during the meeting, the chief minister will explain about welfare schemes introduced by the government such as setting up of Most Backward Classes (MBC) Corporation with a budget of `1,000 crore. “As BCs constitute more than 50 pc, Rao is keen on wooing them to his partyfold by introducing some more schemes,” sources added.

Politicos belonging to weaker sections are curious about the announcements that are likely to be made by Rao during the meeting. Already all political parties identified issues relating to BCs by holding internal meetings within their parties. Rao himself had announced that he would convene a meeting on Dec 3 to discuss on the report given by the BC Commission suggesting more welfare measures for the BCs.
