Kapu patriarch Mudragada Padmanabham said the meeting was the beginning of a new political front in the State. “In fact, reservation to the Kapu community was suggested by Dr BR Ambedkar. Former minister Neelam Sanjiva Reddy implemented it. However, successive governments have scrapped reservation to Kapus,” he said.   

He said the TDP government has failed to implement reservation to Kapus in the State.
