Kapu leader Mudragada Padmanabham has set December 6 as the deadline for the State government to settle the long pending reservation issue.

Speaking to media here on Sunday, he said that he would take up the agitation again if the government fails to fulfil it by the end of the deadline. ‘We will not rest till our demands are met. We will not sleep and will not allow the Chief Minister to sleep. There is no going back’, he said.

December 6 is the death anniversary of Dr.B.R.Ambedkar and that is why we have chosen that date as the deadline. We are not seeking anything out of the way. We are only asking the Chief Minister to keep his election promise of including the Kapu in the list of BCs, he said.

He did not rule out of formation of a new party or an alliance with others. ‘It is because of the Chief Minister that the Kapus are on the warpath’, he said. ‘We are not demanding that the entire community be extended the reservation facility. The affluent sections need not be included. Only those who are economically backward should be included that too without affecting the existing set-up’, he said.
