Accordingly the Andhra Pradesh government on Monday approved a proposal to grant 5% quota to the Kapu community in the state, days after the Centre recently passed a Bill to provide 10% reservation to Economically Backward Classes (EBCs) from the general category in jobs and education.  Meanwhile the decision to ensure that half of the quota under the EBC category is reserved for Kapus was taken after a state cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu. 

When speaking to reporters, state I&PR Minister Kalava Srinivasulu said, "If we were to look at those who can be classified as economically backward, it is clear that there are many people from the Kapu community. We have a Commission report to show this on paper and the other communities will also get justice because they will also get the remaining half of the EBC quota.”

Moreover the TDP also seems to be taking yet another step in tapping into the Kapu vote as it is attempting to lure senior leader Vangaveeti Radha, the son of late Kapu leader and Congress MLA Vangaveeti Mohana Ranga, to join the party. Furthermore insiders say that the YSRCP leadership considered Vishnu, a Brahmin, as the community is a considerable vote bank in the constituency.
