Pradesh Chief Minister and TDP Supremo Chandrababu Naidu had shifted his focus on to curtailing the over enthusiasm of BJP state unit. A section of BJP under the leadership of MLC Somu Veerraju are targeting the government and TDP party big time with severe criticism on various government schemes.

Leaving aside if BJP high command is aiding these people or not, the party definitely harbours the hopes of contesting and winning the 2019 elections on its own. BJP is banking on Kapu community for this turn of fortunes. BJP made a Kapu as a minister in Naidu’s cabinet and they say Somu Veerraju from the same community may also be the next Party President.

In order to break the Kapu advantage to BJP, Naidu is mooting the idea of imparting reservations to Kapu community. Naidu is thinking of including Kapu community in BC category giving them the reservations as promised in the last elections. This will also counter Pawan Kalyan in case Janasena contest the next elections.
