Anakapalle MP M.Srinivasa Rao said that a private member Bill on Kapu reservation will be introduced in the Lok Sabha during the ensuing Budget session.

‘I have applied for introducing the Bill and received a confirmation from the Legislative Officer, he said today. The committee set up by the State government had already given its report. The State Assembly too had passed the bill It is for the Parliament now to take a call, he said.

The MP appealed all the parties to support the Bill as Kapus were one of the most backward communities in the State despite being the largest community. He said that Kapus had earlier enjoyed BC status but were subsequently removed from the list. It is time justice is done to the community, he said. He further added that changing the status of fishermen from BC to SC would also be taken up.
