Yesterday, YSRCP President YS Jagan said in Kakinada that Kapu reservation is in centre's purview and that he can't assure Kapu reservation if voted to power. Jagan went on to say that he will only double the funds allotted to the Kapu Corporation if his party comes to power.
As expected, Jagan's statement received a huge flak from the Kapu community. Even the Kapu patriarch Mudragada Padmanabham breathed fire on Jagan. "If you don't vouch for our community, what's your use for us?," Mudragada shot a direct question to Jagan.
Mudragada alleged that Jagan insulted the Kapu community because he refused to support Jagan's padayatra in Kakinada. "If Kapu reservation is a central issue, why are you fighting for the special status?," Mudragada questioned Jagan.
The senior politician further reminded that Jagan once demanded Chandrababu to implement his promise for Kapu reservation in the assembly. Criticising Jagan's u-turn on Kapu reservation, Mudragada said that Jagan should not allot tickets to any Kapu leaders in his party.
The biggest surprise came in when Mudragada praised his arch rival AP CM Nara Chandrababu Naidu. "Compared to Jagan, Babu is much better. I hope Babu will implement his Kapu reservation resolution soon," said Mudragada.
