Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu fired on the agitators, who burnt the public property.
Naidu said that the government is committed to what it said during the elections and would surely fulfill its promise by giving Kapus, reservation quota under OBC community.
Naidu speculated or to say confirmed that it is YSRCP, who was behind the violence took place in Tuni yesterday, in the name of Kapus.
Right after the formation of the TDP government in AP, the opposition parties, YSRCP and Congress, tried to pinch the government several times, to fulfill its promise, regarding the inclusion of Kapu community in OBC.
Even the government never denied to do it, and is performing the ground work for it, for quite some time.
Expressing the same, Naidu said, “I am committed to reservation for Kapu community for which a Judicial Commission was also constituted.”
Naidu said on the basis of the report of the commission, reservation benefits would be extended to the community, without exceeding the total reservation by 50 per cent, as per the decision of the Supreme Court.
“I am condemning the incident and it is unfortunate that some leaders in the guise of politicians (are) acting like ‘goondas’,” he added.
“The people from East Godavari district in which Tuni falls never indulged in such actions and they are not aggressive in nature, but they were instigated a politician who amasses property by adopting corrupt practices,” he added.
Naidu opined that if the same situation continues in the state, even the investments would be halted, and thus questions the development of the state.
Not to the surprise of many, YSRCP leaders countered Naidu’s statements, saying that it is the government’s negligence and nothing else.
On the other hand, the Kapu community officials have kept a deadline till today. After the deadline, the consequences are expected to be severe. Chandrababu Naidu meanwhile, is about to participate in a press meet, regarding the issue.
