YSR Congress chief and the leader of opposition in Andhra Pradesh Assembly YS Jaganmohan Reddy has demanded the resignation of Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu after the state failed to get the special category status as promised in AP Reorganisation Act.
Addressing media at the assembly which is convened to ratify the GST bill, Reddy lambasted the chief minister for his alleged doublespeak on the issue of special status.
“On one hand, he says he is striving for special status and on the other hand expresses happiness over the Centre’s announcement of special package which is of miniscule value to the state,” said Reddy adding that only special status can compensate the injustice meted out to Andhra Pradesh in the bifurcation.
The party has called a state-wide bandh on September 10 protesting against the Centre’s denial of special status to Andhra Pradesh.
The Congress leader appealed to the people of state to participate in the bandh demanding the special category status to the state.
