Prominent Kapu community leader. Kanna Lakshmi Narayana created a high drama in Andhra Pradesh by sending out signals that he will be joining YCP soon. Interestingly, he fell ill just before he was set to join YCP and that incident changed everything. All of a sudden, TDP came into the equation and rumors were rife that the Kapu leader is wishing to join the yellow party.
All this drama took place because Kanna was not offered a respectable position in the Bharatiya Janata Party. There were speculations that either Somu Veerraju or Manikyala Rao will be awarded the AP BJP president post. These developments deeply hurt Kanna and he decided to switch loyalties towards YCP. This dilly-dallying lasted for over a month or so.
To everyone’s surprise, BJP allotted the president post to Kanna Lakshmi Narayana and kept hold of the strong Kapu leader. Apparently, the decision was taken yesterday and the party has released an official announcement regarding the same. Kanna is set to take over the party president responsibilities soon, said a few BJP leaders.
