Former minister Chrgondi Harirama Jogaiah filed a petition in the AP High Court seeking 5 per cent reservation for Kapus’ under the EWS quota. On Tuesday, the counsel for the petitioner argued in the court that the denial of reservation to Kapus is a political conspiracy. He said that the Kapus are still financially backward. The counsel for the petitioner brought to the notice of the High Court that the Jagan Mohan Reddy government is opposing the reservation because it believes that if the Kapus get 5 per cent reservation, they will gain economic strength. The High Court directed the AP government to file a counter in this regard. The hearing on the petition has been postponed to February 20.

Harirama Jogaiah in December requested CM Jagan to provide 5 per cent reservation to Kapus in the 10 per cent of EWS quota allotted to the poor among the upper castes. As the State government did not respond to this, Harirama Jogaiah took up a fast-unto-death, but the police foiled it.

Later, Jogaiah moved the court demanding reservation to Kapus under the EWS quota.
