It is an open secret that Mudragada Padmanabham is a powerful Kapu community leader who can influence a section of voters in Andhra Pradesh. In the recent past, Mudragada has been going hard against Chandra Babu for failing to allocate special reservation to Kapu community as he promised during 2014 elections.
On a contemporary note, Mudragada said that any political leader who stands by the Kapu community will have their support. These comments are suggesting that Mudragada is mildly supporting opposition leader, YS Jagan as the YCP chief recently promised that he will be implementing new schemes to benefit Kapus. Jagan is no mood to lose out on the Kapu vote bank as they can eventually turn game-winners in 2019 elections and he will be coming up with more attractive schemes in the following days.
Also, Pawan Kalyan’s inexperience and unstable attitude may provoke Kapus to vote for Jagan. With that being said, TDP will not go down without a fight as they would have already prepared gameplans and strategies to attract the Kapu voters. Who will Kapus choose? This question can be answered only after the following elections
