TDP National General Secretary Nara Lokesh Assures Beda and Budaga Jangam Communities
The representatives of Beda and Budaga Jangam communities in Mummidivaram Constituency met TDP National General Secretary Nara Lokesh and submitted a petition outlining their problems. They mentioned that around 500 people from these communities in Konaseema district were designated as Scheduled Caste in the past.
But in 2008, the government halted their caste certificates, citing concerns about bogus certificates. Despite the formation of the JC Sharma commission by TDP Chief & Former CM N Chandrababu Naidu, which is still pending approval from the Centre, they are not receiving the welfare schemes they are entitled to.
In response, Nara Lokesh stated that various sections of society have been deceived by the Jagan Reddy government. He acknowledged the unfortunate delay in approving the RC Sharma Commission report over the past 4.5 years and assured the representatives that the report would be sanctioned. He pledged to provide permanent caste certificates to Beda and Budaga Jangam communities, ensuring access to welfare schemes and educational opportunities without obstacles.
