Naidu owes apology to SCs

Hyderabad, April 13: YSR Congress has demanded Chandrababu Naidu to apologize to SCs for his remarks against them before going ahead with the BR Ambedkar Jayanthi celebrations.

‘It is shameful on part of Chandrababu Naidu to say that no one would like to be born as SC and he did not even regret for passing a heinous remark. He owes a public apology for such words and with that his participation in Ambadkar Jayathi celebrations would be a mockery,’ party leader Ambati Rambabu told reporters here on Wednesday.

Without even regretting for passing such a remark and going ahead with plans of 125-foot Ambedkar statue could only be self-deception, he said.

Chandrababu also owes an explanation as to why the funds earmarked for SCs and STs were not spent in full or diverted, he said.

In a separate press conference, BC leader R Krishnaiah said that he met YSRCP President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy who has agreed to write a letter to the Centre on the reservations to BCs.

He thanked him for the gesture and hoped that BC reservation would be taken up by other states as well.
