SC Categorisation: Govt renews appeal to end stir

Minister for Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan and Primary Education S Shailajanath, who is on the Cabinet Sub-Committee for categorisation said that the government was ready to lead a delegation to New Delhi over the issue.

Speaking to media persons at the state Secretariat on Tuesday, Mr Shailajanath said that the government has appealed to Madiga Reservation Porata Samithi president Manda Krishna Madiga, to call off his stir as the government was ready to lead a delegation to New Delhi as desired.

The Minister said that the categorisation of SCs was very much on its agenda, including in the Congress party manifesto.

The government was also committed to the categorisation, but it will take some time as Constitutional and legal problems were bound to arise.

Mr Shailajanath stated that Mr Krishna Madiga must also understand that it was not that easy to get the appointment of top leaders who were preoccupied with current problems.

However, Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy was as much committed and resolved to find a solution to it should there be an occasion.

Asked about Mr Jaganmohan Reddy quitting the party, the Minister said it was unfortunate. Even now he is welcome back, he said.
