HYDERABAD: TRS MP K Kavitha, who represents Nizamabad Lok Sabha segment, convened a meeting with the representatives of Munnuru Kapu community at her office here in the city on Wednesday.
The meeting was held at a time when party Rajya Sabha member D Srinivas, who hails from the same Munnuru Kapu caste, was maintaining silence in the party, while his son Arvind has been active in the BJP to contest from the Nizamabad Lok Sabha seat in the 2019 polls.
This development assumes political significance as D Srinivas is one of the top leaders in Munnuru Kapus, which is a dominant caste in the district. Of late, Srinivas has begun concentrating on caste organization activities and has been providing funds from MPLADs to take up community-based development programmes.
While addressing the meeting of Munnuru Kapus, Kavitha urged caste organizations to take steps to form district level Munnuru caste organisation. This would help them gain access to state’s development programmes in a better way, the Nizamabad MP suggested.
