Vijayawada: The Vangaveeti family, which had won the support of every Kapu family in the Coastal districts, is now viewed as trouble maker.
The Vangaveeti clan, who have succeeded Congress slain MLA, Vangaveeti Mohana Ranga, have benefited by the Congress in the last 20 years, but are seen as betrayers of the Congress. Their attitude has put the credibility of the total Kapu community at stake, the Congress leaders believe.
After the murder of Mohana Ranga, the Congress had made his brother Vangaveeti Sobhana Chalapathi Rao, as MLA from Vuyyuru. Chalapathi Rao had represented the Congress twice in Assembly. The party had made Chalapathi Rao’s son, Santhan Kumar, as Youth Congress leader. Senior Congress leaders like Kanna Lakshmi Narayana, Jakkampudi Ramamohana Rao and Ambati Rambabu, have extended their support to Santhan during the past two decades. Unfortunately, the family had distanced from the Congress.
Besides honouring Chalapathi Rao, the Congress had also honoured Ranga’s widow, Rathna Kumari and made her MLA twice in Vijayawada. She too had betrayed the party and jumped into Telugu Desam.
Now, it was the turn of Ranga’s son, Radha Krishna, whom the party made MLA from Vijayawada. While being in the Congress, Radha Krishna had failed to strengthen the party in the last four years. On the contrary, he had put the party in trouble on several occasions.
His decision to join the Praja Rajyam too is being considered as betrayal. He had promised to stay back in the Congress in the midst of speculation and had made his corporator, Rathna Bindu, as Mayor of this city. Where his promise to stay with the Congress has gone is the big question now.
With every successor from the Vangaveeti clan betraying the Congress, the credibility of the Kapu community is now at stake. Majority of the Kapus from the coastal districts believe that time had come for them to prove their loyalties to the Congress. Some of the Kapunadu leaders are now holding internal talks to stay with Congress and prove their credibility.
Thanks to the Vangaveeti’s actions, the Congress is now set to benefit as the Kapus are getting ready to prove their loyalties to the party.
