Stating that implementation of BC creamy-layer concept was not correct, Rajya Sabha member and Congress senior leader V Hanumantha Rao has said he has already urged the Centre to increase the BCs’ income limit from Rs 6 lakh to Rs 15 lakh for the implementation of BCs’ creamy-layer rule.
Speaking to the media at Gandhi Bhavan here on Sunday, Hanumanth Rao said the BC Commission too responded to his suggestion in a positive manner. “I will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on BC Creamy-Layer issue and if necessary, will launch a movement on implementation of creamy-layer along with BC Unions”, he warned. He also exuded confidence that the Congress would sweep the ensuing GHMC elections. (NSS)
