Jagan is doing foot march (padayatra) in the state and he already crossed the mark of 2000 km. He recently entered Godavari districts and as usual people gathered to his padayatra in thousands. However, unlike previous districts where he didn’t face any embarrassment, in Godavari districts, he seemed to have faced somewhat embarrassing situations.
Kapu reservation is on cards since several years but because of 2014 TDP election promise, it is further intensified. Currently the issue is pending with center. TDP, Congress have already supported this issue while YSRCP or Jagan has never clearly spelled his stand. Kapus in Godavari district showed him placards asking him to spell out his stand. Reportedly, Jagan is seeing those placards and smiled at them but didn’t talk about it and moved on.
Probably Jagan is skeptical of losing votes of other communities if supports Kapu reservation issue, was the opinion of locals who saw this incident. Kapu youth are also questioning Mudragada through social media – why he is not asking Jagan to spell out his stand on this issue.
We will have to wait and see how Jagan handles this issue.
