BJP MP and member of the party’s central election committee K Laxman said on Saturday that his party will field between 35 and 40 BC candidates in the upcoming Telangana elections and that the first list with the names of over 50 candidates was ready.Addressing the media in Delhi on Saturday morning, he criticised the Congress for ‘failing’ to give adequate representation to its BC leaders in the allotment of tickets and remarked that “Congress wants only the BC votes, but not seats.”

“While one party (BRS) has given tickets to only 23 BCs, the other party (Congress) has not done even that,” he added.
