Jana Sena party Founder and President Pawan Kalyan said that if need be he would not shy away from fasting until death to achieve Special Category Status (SCS) for Andhra Pradesh but later took a U-turn on SCS.
Again he clarified saying special category status to the State was not a big problem, but getting financial assistance from the Centre is very important.
He said, In one of my interviews yesterday, Regarding special category status there seems to be a misinterpretation in some papers. Fact is whatever the financial aid as part of Act and excess aid can come and it has nothing to do with SCS and Janasena demands both. Special Status is not a sentiment… It is a basic right.
