Andhra Pradesh: The drone pilot training programme launched by the YS Jagan Mohan Reddy government is only open to applicants from the two minority communities, said Vishnu Vardhan Reddy, the BJP’s general secretary for Andhra Pradesh.
The training will be provided by the Drone Institute of Technology (DIT) in Andhra Pradesh, according to the poster, only Christian and Muslim candidates would receive free training and job placement.
Questioning the Andhra Chief Minster YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s anti-Hindu bias, the BJP leader remarked: “Everyone has equal rights on the resources then why Andhra Pradesh CM has expressly kept training just for students of 2 communities?” in response to criticism of the anti-Hindu prejudice of Andhra CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. The Andhra govt is playing very shady politics with our students, which could cause communal tension. They should take back this decision.

The advertisement shared by the BJP’s Vishnu Vardhan Reddy features the Andhra Pradesh state picture and an image of the state’s chief minister, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. The course has been developed to provide free training in drone flying and subsequent free placement, but strictly for Christians and Muslims only, it states in quite strong characters.
The opposition parties in Andhra Pradesh have always accused YS Jagan Reddy, a Christian, of spending more on the services Christian community, this has encouraged conversion activities, ever since he became the Chief Minister of Andhra.
Last year, the National Commission for Scheduled Castes issued a notice to the Chief Secretary of Andhra Pradesh seeking a report regarding the action taken against the forceful conversions targeting the Scheduled Caste (SC) community in the state.
