Participating in the debate on the Amendment Bill, the TRS MP said that it was a happy moment that the Bill was introduced giving powers to the States. 

However, National BC Welfare Association president R Krishnaiah said that the Bill was of no use for BCs. The Bill would render injustice to BCs, he said. If the States were given powers, then the States would include developed castes into the list.
