YSRCP Chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said that his party MPs would resign their posts on April 6 on the issue of special category status for Andhra Pradesh. He said the party MPs would stage protests from March 5 to April 6, which is the last day of Parliament’s budget session demanding special status to Andhra Pradesh and on the next day put in their papers to intensify the agitation.
Addressing a massive public meeting at Kaligiri in Udayagiri assembly constituency in Nellore district on Tuesday, he said his party would wage a relentless battle to achieve special status to the state. Special package is a mirage and only special category can do justice to the people of the state, he pointed out. He said the people of the state were watching the unfolding TDP drama for the past 12 days.
The two ministers from the TDP in the Central Government have approved the Union budget without any objections. Their chief minister then praises the budget and says the AP has got a fair share in the union budget. This has been reported in media. Now, the same party and its leader are waging a fake battle in the name of special package, he said.
He said on March 3, all YSRCP MPs and senior leaders will join the Praja Sankalpa Yatra, where he would flag off their tour to Delhi. If the special status is not given, the YSRCP MPs would resign, he said.
