CBN regime has just one caste (kammas) that got the goodies. another important observation is that Kammas have grown from ordinary middle classes to the richest class of AP in less than two decades. This led to ganging up of other castes such as Reddys and Kapus against TDP. YSR and YSJ are the only two tall leaders to take the lead. AP has no leaders other than CBN and YSR.
EJs and their influence on AP politics is an extreme exxaggaration being used in analysis especially on Internet. YSJ and YSR are looked as saviours of several castes and also slow growing Reddys to stop the juggernaut and fast growing Kammas.
When we discuss YSR aura over AP if we keep bringing up EJ stuff,we will never get the real picture of why the man is still popular inspite of the largest loot in the history of the state. I just completed a cross section of the state and really talked to a random sections of people and I see YSR is still popular in all regions. If T sentiment is lessened from it's current state either by separation or by compromise, inspire of TRS, Jagan can still pull off in T region.
In the educated classes of T, Andhras means Kammas and they did not like the fact that this community has grown too fast in front of them though they appreciate the enterprenural skills.
No wonder target seems to be Lagadapati, Kavuri, Rayapati, and CBN - all Kammas. Is the resentment due kammas buying lands in and around Hyderabad which is recent (last 2-3 decades independent of TDP also of course) phenomenon, or Is it because the lands they purchased in normal Telangana areas which is phenomenon since 50s *? My guess is latter is the reason as Hyderbad buying happened across all castes and no one near Hyderabad show such resentment. Resentment is coming from interiors.
Any studies as to which non-T folks bought lands in Telanagana in interior areas?
* Two new migrations to Bellary and Nizambad areas from Coastal districts. Of course Reddies were also similarly migrated to Bellary (Gali Brothers from Tirupati area are famous among them)
