The Telangana government is planning to set up a special body which will work for the welfare of Brahmins in the state.

The proposed body would be set up on the lines of Brahmin Welfare Corporation in (new) Andhra Pradesh, official sources told PTI on Tuesday.

The decision on setting up the corporation is likely to be made after the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections, scheduled to be held on February 2, are over.

The move to set up the corporation came in the wake of representations received by the government and to work for the welfare of the community, the sources added.

Quoting sources, the Times of India also reported that the Telangana government said the chief minister convened a meeting on Tuesday to deliberate on the proposed Brahmin Corporation. He is reported to have instructed officials to study the Andhra Pradesh model and report to him.

Brahmin voters account for a significant eight percent of the total 75 lakh electorate, the report adds.
