Kapu Leader Mudragada Padmanabham Sets Dec 6 Deadline To AP CM:- The deadline to know the state government stance on reservations for Kapus, was set as December 6 by Kapu leader Mudragada Padmanabham, on Saturday. The death anniversary of B.R. Ambedkar, is on the same day.
“Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao considered the Pulse survey report in just one day. AP Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has not yet asked for any report based on the Justice Manjunatha Commission,” he said.

In granting BC status to Kapus, Naidu was never serious, but instead was trying to derive political mileage from the promise.
He said, “We are demanding bringing the the economically backward people of the Kapu fraternity under the BC category. We are not seeking from the 49 per cent reservation meant for BCs, SCs and STs. We are asking to include the economically backward Kapus in the 51 per cent of the unreserved category.”
“Three years after coming to power, the AP government has failed to provide reservation to Kapus. We will again state protests if the Chief Minister doesn’t fulfill his promise,” he said while interacting with mediapersons here on Sunday.
