Andhra Pradesh Assembly has witnessed a heated debate one more time and this time the topic is Kapu reservations. Opposition leader Chandrababu Naidu posed direct questions to CM YS Jagan whether they are going to implement any reservations for Kapus.
Speaking Naidu said, "Our TDP government intention was not to create hurdles for Backward Classes (BCs). So we appointed a committee and based on their report we have asked central government consent for reservation for Kapus. They kept this report in pending and later the Centre brought 10 percent reservation economically weaker sections in the general category. In that 10 percent, our TDP government had decided to allot 5 percent for Kapus. I would like to know whether this government will implement the reservation to Kapus."
In reply to Naidu, Jagan said the reservation the centre brought is for general category while here Kapus are demanding for BC reservation. "The opposition leader is completely clueless in which category Kapus belong to. This is a pathetic state and Chandrababu had deceived Kapus in the last five years and hence they did not vote for him in this elections," said Jagan.
Countering Jagan's comments, Naidu recalled 2004 and 2009 Congress party election manifesto which promised Kapu reservation. YSR was leading the party then in Andhra Pradesh.
With Naidu's comments, the assembly's atmosphere changed all of a sudden and MLAs from both side raised slogans against each other.
