Vijayawada: Chief Minister Naidu said that Sunday’s Kapu Garjana violence had been preplanned by the YSRC and that a leader with a criminal background was behind the violence. “The people of East Godavari and Kapus have never done this kind of criminal acts in the past. Some persons with criminal backgrounds did this. The YSRC leaders are expanding the Pulivendula mark of rowdism to other parts of the state,” he said.
Expressing worry over the incident, the CM alluded to YSRC leader Jagan Mohan Reddy and asked why his father YSR had not given reservation to Kapus.
“They are creating hurdles by encouraging disputes between Kapus and BCs. How can the government implement GO 30? The government is committed to implementing the promise of Kapu reservation. But we have to convince other BC communities.”
“The government has set up a commission and has allotted `100 crore for Kapus. What was the need to attack the police, railway stations and police personnel?” he asked. The TD-BJP government including deputy CM and Home minister N. China Rajappa and other leaders also blamed the violence on Jagan’s goons.
