PM Modi vows panel to look at SC sub-quota demand
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced the formation of a committee to consider the demand for sub-categorization of scheduled castes (SC) in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The Madiga community, which constitutes nearly 50% of the SC population in Telangana, has long sought distinct quotas, claiming that other SC groups have received disproportionate benefits. The announcement is expected to have nationwide ramifications, bringing the issue of reservations and the creamy layer into the spotlight this election season. The issue is also pending in the Supreme Court.
