Andhra Pradesh Assembly passes law to give reservation to Kapu community

Andhra Pradesh Assembly passes law to give reservation to Kapu community

Andhra Pradesh Government gave its nod for Kapus to be added in BCs and the reservation for them goes to 5%.

The Congress on Thursday criticised the Andhra Pradesh government for changing the funding terms of the Polavaram irrigation project in violation of the bifurcation act, saying it had put enormous financial burden on the state.

With the cabinet having accepted the 5 per cent reservation for Kapus, the state assembly is to discuss the Manjunatha Committee report on Saturday and pass a resolution which will then be sent to the Centre. Kapus and three other communities have been kept under a newly created category "F". The four communities ok Kapus - Kapu, Ontari, Telaga and Balija will now get reservation in education, employment and government along with the economic benefits that the BCs have been getting. The AP cabinet will meet again today and Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu will announce it in the State Assembly. Since such a crucial decision cannot be taken with just an administrative order as it could be struck off by the court, the government appointed the Manjunatha Commission and took the decision based on its report.We will send it to the Centre for approval.

Kapu community comprises 27 per cent of the total population and has been demanding reservation for over a decade.

The reservation break-up in AP at present is 25 per cent for BCs, 15 per cent for SCs, 6 per cent for STs and 4 per cent for minorities, thus taking the total to exactly 50 per cent.

"Inclusion of Kapus has been a long-pending demand, and the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), in its election manifesto in 2014, promised to fulfil their demand". BC reservations for them was even a poll promise by the ruling TDP.
