Ever since YS Jagan became the CM, several measures have been initiated to benefit the Kapus. This has left the TDP more confused and concerned. So, when Minister Avanthi Srinivas organised an Atmeeya Sammelanam of the Kapus, the TDP was ready with a plan to disrupt the meeting. Rajya Sabha MP and YSRCP general secretary Vijaysai Reddy was the chief guest at the meeting. In fact, it showed the importance that the YSRCP was giving to the Kapu community.
But, some TDP elements tried to make Vijaysai Reddy's presence an issue. They argued that a non-Kapu should not be present at the Atmeeya Sammelanam of the Kapus and shouted slogans against him. They tried to make a big issue of this. But, they got very little support as majority of the Kapus backed the presence of Vijaysai Reddy. Vijaysai Reddy himself spoke in a very friendly and conciliatory tone. He pacified the protesters. At the end, barely a handful of diehard TDP workers remained and all others supported Vijaysai Reddy. Needless to say, the TDP men were disappointed as their plan has not worked at all.
