HYDERABAD: Creamy layer has been introduced only to ensure that people from all Backward Classes (BC) are benefited from the rule of reservation, justice V Eswaraiah, chairman of National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC), has said.
“There is no need to be apprehensive about implementation of creamy layer as it is implemented only to ensure that the people from even the most backward of castes like wandering sects among others are also benefited and to prevent just one or two dominant castes from enjoying the benefits of reservation,” explained justice V Eswaraiah while speaking at the first anniversary of Backward Classes Centre for Empowerment (BCCE) here on Sunday. Eswariah called upon all BC leaders in the country to wage a united fight for the rights of BCs.
BCCE was established by Telgu Desam parliamentarian T Devender Goud to educate BCs about their rights and to unite them.
“Social justice is not a mere addition to the vocabulary for linguistic elegance but is an active ideology to ensure equality of people,” said K Veeramani, president of Dravidar Kazhgam, delivering a lecture on ‘The challenges ahead in the dispensation of social justice’.
Rajya Sabha member and senior Congress leader V Hanumantha Rao credited Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi with the implementation of reservation for BCs in central government departments.
Ponnam Prabhakar and Madhu Yashki Goud were among the other BC leaders who also participated in the programme.
