HYDERABAD: Congress demanded that the reservation of seats for BCs in the ensuing Panchayat Raj polls be done in a scientific manner only on the basis of a door-to-door enumeration to get exact figures of voters belonging to Backward Classes and implement rule of reservation as per A,B,C, D classification among BCs.TPCC chief spokesperson Dasoju Sravan said, while addressing media on Saturday, the OBC population constitutes more than 52 per cent as per ‘Samagra Kutumba Survey (SKS)’ taken up by the State government in 2014. 

However, he said that the OBCs were being denied their due share in socio-economic resources and political opportunities. “The saga of deliberate deprival and denial of justice is apparently being reflected even in forthcoming Panchayat Raj elections. The New Panchayatraj Act is totally confusing and contradicting the very spirit of 73rd constitutional amendment and subsequent verdicts of High Court nullifying the OBC reservations,” he said.

Sravan wrote a letter to Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao in this regard. 
In the letter, the Congress leader said a door to door enumeration would show that population of  BCs in Telangana exceeds 52% of the general population. Therefore, he said reservation for BCs would have to be made in accordance with these figures.
