Expedite process to accord special status to AP: Governor to Centre

Special Category Status

Vijayawada: Opposition parties from Andhra Pradesh comprising Congress and CPI will hold a joint protest in Delhi on Monday demanding the Special Category Status for the State.

The YSR Congress, along with 2,000 Andhrites studying and working in Delhi and other cities, also held a dharna at Parliament Street here to demand the special status for their state.

Gandhi said that if his party came to power in 2019, the first thing his government would do is give special category status to Andhra. It was a continuation of their protest since yesterday when both the houses of the Parliament were adjourned within 10 minutes of convening amid protest by the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) MPs. He added that the YSRCP is ready to join hands with the TDP in this protest. He reminded that Congress, which had played with Telugu people, lost address in the state, the BJP should remember that. We have spoken of good deeds of BJP to the people of the state, however, our fight is for the promises unfulfilled. The process of snapping ties is likely to be set in motion with the resignation of two TDP ministers - Ashok Gajapathi Raju and Y S Chowdhary - from the Narendra Modi cabinet. "The centre has to fulfil all the 19 pending issues as per the AP Reorganization Act (2014)", TDP MP Kesineni Srinivas said. Even Chandrababu is heard whether to go with an immediate decision or still wait for further developments. "We can not give special category status on the ground of backwardness because on that count it is Bihar which should be considered first", a senior BJP leader said. A senior TDP functionary, who did not want to be named, said that at the committee meeting last week it was nearly chose to come out of the National Democratic Alliance's (NDA) fold.

"BJP is also working on the issues due to the state and consultations are on". "KCR (as Rao is known) now probably sees that Modi is on a weaker wicket, given recent by-poll results in north India".
