Play and Pause and Play and Pause. This is the style that Mudragada usually agitates. If his activity is drawn on a graph sheet, the line of his activity remains constantly active on both X and Y Axes. So after a break, Mudragada Padmanabham is again back, this time with a Padayatra, seeking BC reservations for his Kapu community. The Padayatra is scheduled to begin from July 26th, startrts at his hometown, Kirlampudi in East Godavari district. This yatra continues through East and West Godavari Districts, covering Krishna as well. He also released a public letter, addressing to the AP CM, Chandrababu questioning why he is consulting other BC sections of the society in order to adjust reservations along with them. Mudragada is insisting the state government not to include Kapus into the existing BCs but the community shall get a special status.
Just to recap, he has been on and off busy with Hunger Strikes, Kapu Garjanas (this even has gone totally wrong by leading to violence and property damage in and around Tuni town of East Godavari district by so called Kapu agitators early 2016), fasting to death back in June 2016, meeting at Rajamahendravaram in Sept 2016 etc.
Releasing the route map of his Padayatra that would cover both East and West Godavari and Krishna districts, Mudragada also released an open letter to Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu on the issue of Kapu Reservations.
Stating that there was no going back on the Padayatra, the Kapu leader questioned the reason behind Chandrababu consulting the BCs on reservation quota to Kapus and at the same time, why did he include Kapu reservations in his election manifesto.
