After four years wait, YSRCP president Jagan Mohan Reddy sees Special category status is Andhra Pradesh people right and takes a key decision to mount pressure on AP govt led by TDP ‘s Chandra Babu Naidu.
Jagan after an emergency meeting with his party leaders and MPs had announced a deadline saying YSRCP MPs will resign if SCS is not accorded by 5th April 2018.
He said, For YSRCP, Andhra Pradesh’s interest is paramount! I reiterate that Special Category Status is AP’s right & we will settle for NOTHING LESS – YSRCP MPs will resign if SCS is not accorded by 5th April 2018.
He said, SCS to AP was made a precondition to split the state, the same was assured on the floor of the Parliament by the then ruling and opposition parties alike. It was approved by the Union Cabinet in Mar 2014 & even orders for implementation were sent to the Planning Commission. He alleged AP CM Chandrababu Naidu has sold AP’s interest by trading SCS for the so-called ‘special package’- details of which are unknown.
