Hyderabad: BC leader and TS TD legislator R. Krishnaiah opposed the decision of the party government in AP to give 5 per cent quota for Kapus in education and employment under the BC category.
Mr Krishnaiah said there is no justification for giving reservations for Kapus as they are not backward and demanded that the AP government withdraw the decision.
Mr Krishnaiah said he was a BCs leader first and TD leader or MLA later; protecting the interests was paramount for him.
He said he had no plans to quit the TD but will be forced to take a decision if the TD government goes ahead with the reservations for Kapus in AP. Mr Krishnaiah held meetings with BCs associations.
He said, “We have decided to take legal course of action and will approach the High Court and the Supreme Court challenging the decision.”
He added that if governments continue to give quotas out of political compulsions or coming under pressure from some caste leaders, all castes would resort to such tactics and demand quotas. “The real BCs will suffer if reservations are given to undeserving sections," he said....
