He termed the allocation of Rs 1,050 crore for 70 crore BCs as meagre and demanded at least Rs 1 lakh crore for BC welfare. Krishnaiah said that not even a single scheme was announced for the educational, employment, financial and political development of the BCs. He said that Kasturirangan Commission has recommended the establishment of 8,000 BC hostels and to provide free education, but the budget did not allocate funds to support the initiative, he said.
