Kakinada: Kapu Joint Action Committee (JAC) State convener Mudragada Padmanabham has expressed his unhappiness with the state government’s decision of allocating five per cent reservation to Kapus.

He said that as elections were approaching, Mr Naidu was indulging in such tactics to attract the voters of different castes and five per cent quota for Kapus was also one of the election stunts. He cited the example that in 2017, Mr Naidu had introduced the Kapus Reservation Bill in the Assembly and later washed his hands off the matter by moving it to the Central Government’s court.

He said that there were no separate laws for them and the Kapus....
