Bengaluru: After the Central government made a provision of 10 per cent reservation for economically weaker upper castes, Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa took initiative to set up an exclusive board for brahmin community members.
He launched the new office, logo and website – Karnataka State Brahmana Development Board at his home office Krishna, on Wednesday.
He suggested revenue minister R Ashoka to take action to issue caste certificates to Brahmin community members. This comes in the wake of complaints from the community members that they were not getting caste certificates.
MLA S A Ramadass had appealed to the chief minister to look into the matter.
Chief minister further said that as per the union government order, he will also execute the reservation quota.
During the programme, MLAs Ravi Subramanya, SR Vishwanth, RV Deshpande, MP Tejaswi Surya, former MLA MTB Nagaraj, Sachidananda Murthy, Bhanuprakash Sharma and Mysuru district brahmin association president D T Prakash were present.
