The Kapu violence in Tuni may actually work out to the advantage of KCR in Hyderabad. With passions flaring over the reservation issue and people divided along casteist lines, the Kapu community in Hyderabad to express their disenchantment with the TDP may vote against the TDP. This will definitely work out to the advantage of KCR. The agitation coming exactly on the eve of the GHMC elections in Hyderabad probably symbolizes the fate of the TDP in Hyderabad. Whatever hopes they may have had in Hyderabad only got dimmer now with this violence in Tuni.
