During the erstwhile combined state of Andhra Pradesh the reservations for SCs, STs and BCs was  60.55 %. The Telangana government filed an appeal against the High Court order not to cross the limit of 50 per cent reservations in Panchayat polls, but the apex court refused to accord the sanction.

So the TRS government had proposed 34 % reservations to BCs, 24 % to SCs and 9 % to STs which adds up to 67 per cent.  But if the government follows the court order, the percentage of reservation for the BCs will have to be limited to 23 % and political analysts say that antagonising the BCs could have an adverse impact on the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in 2019 .

Sources say that the  Chief Minister is seeking  legal opinion  whether to seek more time from the court to conduct the elections and in the meantime might go ahead and  issue the ordinance for providing a total of 67 % reservation for BCs, ST and SCs .
