Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) on August 19, 2019, urged the Jagan Mohan Reddy government to implement the reservation for economically weaker sections (EWS) in state government jobs. Reddy said that Economically weaker sections in the upper-caste population lost out during the recent recruitments of village and ward volunteers by the state government. “Recently, the Andhra Pradesh government had filled up nearly 193,400 village volunteers, out of which, economically weaker sections in upper-caste should have got 19340 jobs but the quota was not implemented. A similar thing happened in the ward volunteers recruitment in urban areas,” Reddy said. “Now, APCC is demanding from the Andhra Pradesh government to implement the act passed by the Indian Parliament starting with the upcoming village and ward secretariat vacancies,” Reddy added.
