HYDERABAD: Taken aback the way Kapu Ikya Garjana took violent turn, TDP on Sunday went into firefighting mode and tried to pacify agitating Kapu community.
While charging the YSR Congress and the Congress with overtly providing support to Kapu leaders, particularly former MP Mudragada Padmanabham, to take on the State government by provoking people of Kapu community against the ruling TDP, party leaders made a fervent appeal to Kapus to maintain restraint till a few months as CM N Chandrababu Naidu has begun taking steps to give BC status to the community.
Soon after the news broke that Kapu Ikya Garjana had taken unexpected turn, Deputy CM Nimmakayala Chinna Rajappa, along with TDP AP unit president Kimidi Kala Venkata Rao and other Kapu leaders of TDP, convened a media conference at NTR Trust Bhavan on Sunday evening.
“It is evident that the YSRC has been providing background support to Mudragada Padmanabham to provoke Kapus against the TDP government. The party resorted to this step as Kapus are solidly behind the TDP.
As the State government had decided to give them the BC status, YSRC is now afraid that this would help TDP enjoy Kapu patronage in the state. That is why YSRC has now resorted to this unethical act,” Kala Venkata Rao claimed.
