He also urged the president of NCBC to make public the statistics collected as part of the socio-economic and caste census organized earlier.
Taking up the cause of the 40 BC castes in Telangana who are deprived of reserves because they are not on the Centre’s OBC quota list, Rao submitted detailed technical information on the 40 castes to NCBC President Shaini. He informed Shaini that these 40 BC castes. Rao also thanked the NCBC president for holding a hearing to include BC’s castes on the OBC list from December 22-24.
