GUNTUR: The district leaders of the Kapu Community Association are all set to launch a relay hunger strike at the Collectorate, here, from Saturday to extend their solidarity to Mudragada Padmanabham, who launched a fast-unto-death in East Godavari district demanding inclusion of Kapus in Backward Classes (BCs).

Speaking to mediapersons, here on Friday, the Community’s district leader Manohar said that they have already sought permission from the police department to stage the protest. The protest from Saturday aims to mount pressure on the TDP government to fulfill its promises made to Kapu community during the 2014 elections. The Kapu community leaders also went to the party offices of TDP, YSRC, BJP and Left Parties and sought their support to the relay hunger protest.

Meanwhile, the Guntur Urban SP Sarva Sreshta Tripati convened a meeting with the district police officials and directed them to be alert and to ensure that no untoward incident takes place during the protests by the Kapu community.
