Yet Another Ultimatum From Mudragada!

The fire of Kapu reservations issue continue to rage in Andhra Pradesh notwithstanding the recent passage of the bill in the state assembly providing five per cent reservation for the community in education and employment opportunities in the state.

The bill, which was approved by Governor E S L Narasimhan, was sent to the Centre for ratification in Parliament.

However, going by the statement of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the bill is unlikely to get the Parliament nod because it results in the increase of total percentage of reservations beyond the upper limit of 50 per cent fixed by the Supreme Court.

And it has given a fresh weapon to Kapu strongman and former minister Mudragada Padmanabham.

Though Mudragada appeared to have lost his momentum with the Chandrababu Naidu government deciding to give five per cent quota, the latest statement from the Prime Minister has given yet another weapon to attack Naidu.

Apparently realising that Naidu cannot prevail upon the Modi government to approve the Kapu quota, Mudragada started stepping up the attack on Naidu.

He held a meeting the leaders of Kapu Joint Action Committees at his Kirlampudi residence on Tuesday to discuss th4 strategy.

He told media later that he was giving yet another ultimatum to Naidu to bring the Kapu reservations into implementation by March 31 at any cost.

“We shall wait up to March 31 to see that the Centre approves the bill. If no decision is taken by that time, we will intensify our agitation and teach a fitting lesson to Naidu,” Mudragada warned.

He also came up with a fresh demand saying the Kapus should get reservations not just education and employment but also in politics.

“Without political reservations, no justice would be done to the Kapus,” Mudragada said
