Issue castes certificates for Yadav community, demands Owaisi

Hyderabad: Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday met Telangana BC Commission chairman B.S. Ramulu complaining that members of Yadav community were being denies community and nativity certificates by the Revenue authorities.

Owaisi, in his representation, said that the certificates are being denied for the reason that they are Hindi Yadavs and their mother tongue is Hindi although Yadav community was already in the list of Backward Classes under Group-D since 1970. However, he said that the authorities have stopping issuing Caste Certificates to Yadavs since 2009. He said several representations were made to different authorities on the issue.

The MIM chief also pointed out that after going through the issue in depth, a resolution was passed by the A P Commission for Backward Classes on June 18, 2010 which stated that, “The Commission resolved while issuing caste certificates to non-Telugu speaking BC castes, who are found in the existing list of BCs of AP whose forefathers have migrated from other states, and whose mother tongue is other than Telugu the Revenue Authorities should ascertain from the applicants and issue certificates to only those who are residents of any part of Andhra Pradesh (either by themselves or by their parents and or by their forefathers) continuously from the past 50 years. Basing on the above, a Memo No 29/C212011-1 dt 27 1 2011 was issued in respect of Rajakas Community and Memo No 3822/C/A2/2006 dt 20 8 2013 in respect of Gangaputras community giving a direction for issuance of Caste Certificates to those communities, which are also Hindi speaking and non-Telugu. However, he said that the same benefits were being denied to the members of Yadav community in issuance of Caste Certificates.

Owaisi said that the members of Yadav community are the permanent natives of Hyderabad since time immemorial. “They were born, brought up and have permanent domicile in Hyderabad, Telangana State. Their forefathers came along with the army of Aurangzeb in the year 1757 and settled here and are the permanent inhabitants of Hyderabad, Telangana State for more than two centuries,” he said.

The MIM leader urged the BC Commission to look into the grievances of the Yadav community in respect of granting of Caste and Nativity Certificates and do justice, which he alleged was denied to them since a long time. (INN)
