According to some internal sources, Kapu reservation movement leader Mudragada Padmanabham will be joining YSRCP on 31st of this month. Mudragada wished to hold a public meet at Kathipudi of East Godavari on 31st. But then, the state government deployed around 1000 police forces to ensure Mudragada get arrested in his house.
Earlier, it was speculated Mudragada might join Janasena. But then, what prompted him joining YCP? Following reasons may give us clarity.
* Mudragada is arrogant and adamant by nature and he wishes to dominate any political party. Since Pawan Kalyan doesn't entertain such odd ideologies of political leaders, Mudragada mightn't be joining Janasena.
* Even YS Jagan too doesn't wish any leader to dominate him at any cost. But then, internal survey reports revealed that the party would get hardly one or two seats in East Godavari. As a result, YS Jagan may reluctantly induct Mudragada into the party seeking Kapu voters would be on his side. Of course, Mudragada was defeated in both 2009 and 2014 general elections and YCP's loyalists are worrying about the recent track record of Mudragada.
