The SCs and STs got ticket according to their reservations of 27 and 7 Assembly seats. When it comes to LS seats, Reddys are dominating with 9 seats followed by Kapus (5), SCs (3), Kammas (2), ST (1), Padmashali (1), Turpu Kapu-BC (1), Yadava (1) and OC Velama (1).

East Godavari Kapus shift loyalty; to support YSRC

Kakinada: The Kapu community, dominant in the two Godavari districts, is reconsidering its decision to support the Telugu Desam in view of the latest political developments.
According to sources, the YSR Congress has endeared itself to the Kapu community by selecting to field more than 10 Kapus in the East Godavari district alone. Sources said that in other districts also the party has given importance to the community.

The TD, on the other hand, has announced only three seats for the Kapu community in the district till now.

Jagan confident of being chief minister, plans a new capital

Not for a moment does YSR Congress president Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy doubt that he will become the first chief minister of the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh. So confident is Jagan that he is already working on a blueprint for the “new” state with a leading multinational consultant.

On supporting the new government at the Centre:
“I will support anybody at the Centre except the Congress. The Seemandhra state will need all the support it can get from the Centre in terms of funds, assistance and support. So there is no need for any confrontation with the Centre. I will support a government that is friendly towards Seeman-dhra’s development and its needs.”

National leaders don’t speak our language-Jagan

What will be the impact of TDP-BJP alliance?
Nothing. TDP might increase its percentage to some extent. But our vote share will be between 48 and 50 per cent, clearly 8 to 10 per cent ahead of others. People want sincerity and credibility. People have no confidence in Chandrababu and Kiran Reddy. Chandrababu supported Congress on many issues, be it the no-confidence motion in the Assembly or FDI debate in Parliament.
