Many in YSR Congress are startled by Jagan’s announcement about Kapu Reservations issue. Jagan just rubbed off the issue of his hands saying that he can not promise something which is in the purview of the Central Government.
Kapu Leaders in the party are terrified by this decision and say this can prove to be very costly in the Godavari districts. Incidentally, Jagan refused to do Runa Mafi in 2014 and the party believes that made the difference between winning and losing.
They say this is more or less the same as Runa Mafi Self-Goal and they admit this can prove to be costly in the coming elections. Kapu leaders are terrified about having to face their voters after Jagan took a stance against the reservations issue.
