VIJAYAWADA: BJP State President Kanna Lakshminarayana addressed a letter to Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy to immediately implement the 10 percent reservation to Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) in Andhra Pradesh. He observed that the youth in the State were ‘being deprived’ as the government had not rolled out the quota.

In the letter written on Friday, Kanna said, “The historical decision of the Central government to provide 10 percent reservation to economically weaker upper caste sections in admissions to higher educational institutions and employment has gone astray as it is not being implemented.
