Kapu leader Mudragada Padmanabham threw an open challenge to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and his son Nara Lokesh. He dared CM and his son to do fast unto death deeksha for Special status of AP. He questioned Chandrababu whether he has guts to accept the challenge and launch the indefinite fast. The deadline set by the Mudragada over Kapu Reservations is also coming to end by this month. Before another protest, Mudragada is cornering the ruling party and its chief, Chandrababu Naidu on the special status issue. State government constituted Manjunadha commission to submit a report on the backward classed in Andhra Pradesh. Manjunadha commission is yet to submit the report. Reservation issue is a very sensitive to any ruling party as it’s very hard to please any one particular caste. High courts of respective states are coming into action if state governments grant reservation status as per their will. Recently Gujarat High court decision to strike down Gujarat government decision to grant 10% quota for Economically backward classes in Educational institutions.
This has pushed ruling TDP government into deep trouble. Already YSR CP is trying to prove their presence with the issues that are coming up one by one now with Special status issue and Kapu Reservations that is going to come up, TDP think tank is seriously planning their strategies.
Let’s wait and see how this political storm is going to turn up.
