The Andhra Pradesh Former minister and Kapu leader Mudragada Padmanabham who is spearheading the Kapu reservation movement has changed his stance and came out with a fresh proposal seeking Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu to bring out a new bill in the Assembly to confine the reservations to the state initially.
At a press conference along with the Kapu JAC leaders here on Tuesday, he said legal experts and former judges gave the opinion that the state government could implement the Kapu reservation on its own, by withdrawing the present bill pending with the center for the constitutional amendment and passing a new bill in the state assembly.
After getting the Governor's assent, he said, the reservation could be implemented by including the Kapus in the BCs list F'category.
Mudragada speaking to scribes said Chandra Babu came to power and became Chief Minister promising that Kapus will be listed in BCs. He demanded Chandra Babu to fulfill the promise he made in the last elections.
He said Chandra Babu and the ruling TDP didn't do anything to the Kapu community even after staying in power for more than four years.
He dared Chandra Babu to fulfill all the promises he made to the Kapu community before the start of the next assembly session. He said if Chandra Babu does so, he will felicitate Chandra babu with one lakh people.
