As promised Andhra Pradesh Chief minister Chandrababu Naidu has allocated 1000 Cr for Kapu cooperation in the state budget for 2016-17.
Chandrababu Naidu promised Rs 1,000 crore would be allocated for Kapu Corporation during the 2014 elections . But in the last two budgets 2014- 15 and 2015-16 , these allocations were not included in the budgets.
This has led to agitations led by Mudragada Padmanabham , who took hunger strike for 3 days and took a assurance from the state government for inclusion of Kapus in Backward class list after the report of Manjunatha committee and also inclusion of 1000 cr in the budget 2016-17.
Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu has presented the state budget for 2016-17 in the Assembly today, fulfilling the promise made by Chandar Babu.
