Praja Rajyam Party president Chiranjeevi has announced that his party would give 100 seats to the people belonging to the Backward Classes as per the policy of social justice of PRP.
Chiranjeevi has criticized the Congress party for giving tickets to only 66 candidates from the backward classes whereby the Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy stood exposed on the plank of social justice.
The PRP president also said that the Congress ended up giving 138 seats to the forward classes, including 87 to those from the Reddy community.
He also reminded the Chief Minister of the unanimous resolution passed in the Assembly in August 2008 that all parties must give one-third of the tickets to the BCs.
PRP is expected to announce its list of candidates today.
