Kapu quota under Schedule 9: Andhra Pradesh CM N Chandrababu Naidu


Mr Naidu's justification for awarding 5 per cent reservations to Kapus and their sub sects in education and employment appeared to have convinced legislators belonging to the non-Kapu communities. A new BC-F category will be created for them.

The chief minister said long hectic study hours, no curriculum activity are making "students a machine" and added that the college management put extra pressure on them in the name of weekly tests and grades.

Mudragada, who has closeted with his followers and Kapu Joint Action Committee leaders on Saturday morning, discussed his future course of action in the event of the decision taken by the AP government including Kapus in the BC list and providing five per cent reservations. The reservations will come into effect only if the Centre agrees and passes a resolution in the Parliament because with the Kapu reservations, the total reservations in Andhra Pradesh exceed the 50 per cent limit set by the Supreme Court. "At the same time, we do not want to reduce reservations for existing BCs, so that there will be no injustice to them". Commission chairman Justice K.L. Manjunatha preferred not to make any recommendation on the issue, while others like M. Purnachander Rao, S. Satyanarayana and V. Subramanyam approved the OBC status to Kapus. Only education and employment reservation is enough. "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", said AP HRD Minister G Srinivasa Rao after the cabinet meeting. It is also seen as an attempt to checkmate YSR Congress attempts to woo Kapus during party chief Jaganmohan Reddy's ongoing walkathon (padayatra).

As of now the reservations for Backward Classes, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes is - 25 per cent, 15 per cent and 6 per cent respectively.

The chief minister appealed to those concerned to pursue the matter with the Centre to get the quota for Kapus included in Schedule 9.
