Chandrababu hurt Kapus’ feelings: Ummareddy

Affirming that the Kapus’ meeting at Tuni was apolitical in nature, YSR Congress Party has slammed Chief Minister N Chandrababau Naidu for his “unwarranted and uncharitable” remarks against the main Opposition Party.

“The January 31 Kapu Mahagarjana at Tuni is being organized by the Kapu community cutting across party lines and leaders from walks of life would be taking part in it to resolve that the government should revoke the reservations to the community. It is highly objectionable for Chandrababu Naidu to cast aspersions on our Party. Such language does not go will with the chair he occupies and we strongly condemn his tone and tenor”, party MLC Ummareddy Venkateswarlu told the media here on Saturday.

“We demand that a resolution to this effect be moved in the Assembly, passed unanimously and mount pressure on the Centre to include it in Schedule 9 which gives the right to increase the reservations to more than 50 % as was done in Tamil Nadu and other states,” he said. “Both TDP and our Party have included the reservations to Kapus in our manifestos and TDP has done nothing on the count and when the Kapu community is getting united, Chandrababu Naidu has been casting aspersions on the main opposition party and has passed very highly objectionable remarks”, he said.

“Chandrababu Naidu should remember that TDP had organized a Kapu Sadassu in Warangal in 1987 and he should observe restraint and refrain from using such uncharitable language. He should cooperate and make use of his office to ensure that the reservations to Kapu community will be in place with the support of the Union Government”, Ummareddy said. (NSS)
