    Minister of Social Welfare H Anjaneya on Sunday announced that the government will make arrangements to provide reservation for both Brahmin and Vysya communities and bring them to the mainstream.
    At the 5th Karnataka State Vysya Sahitya Sammelan, he said both communities that once occupied a prime position are now in crisis and are slowly moving out of the social axis. The department has made arrangements for providing Vidyashree scholarship, fee concession and other monetary benefits from the current academic year and the order will come out in a day or two, he said.
    He promised to backward class tag for both the communities after getting recommendation from the chairman of the backward classes commission. A letter has already been written to the commission. Anjaneya also said the government has taken up a mammoth task of caste-based census, eyeing inclusive growth of the state. “These days protests are not undertaken for public welfare but propaganda. After getting mileage in the media, the protest ends,” he said.
    He regretted that the Vysya community failed to demand reservation and other benefits.
