Jagan U-turn on Kapu Reservation :
Jagan Mohan Reddy accused the media, especially the electronic media of distorting his comments at a public meeting in Jaggampeta in East Godavari district.
Addressing a public meeting here on Tuesday, the YSRCP chief made it clear that the YSRCP would support the Kapu quota issue without causing any loss to the BCs & harming their rights,
YSRCP never took a U-turn on Kapu reservation issue & there was no change in its stand on Kapu reservation issue, asserted party president YS Jaganmohan Reddy.
Naidu remembers the Kapu only when the movement for quota of the Kapu reaches its crescendo, he said pointing out that the Chief Minister had released only Rs 1,342 crore for the Kapu Corporation as against the Rs 5,000 crore promised by him.
He alleged that Naidu appointed a commission on quota for Kapu to hoodwink the Kapu & presented a report of the commission, which did not bear the signature of the chairman of the commission, on the floor of the state Legislative Assembly.
The Opposition leader breathed fire on local MLA N V S N Varma accusing him of encouraging sand mafia in the constituency. Earlier, Kapu youth staged a black flag demonstration to express their protest against the Jagan’s statements in Jaggampeta.
