Jagan's Blunder or Tongue Slip on Special Status?

TDP ministers may resign if Centre does not heed Andhra’s demands Jagan's Blunder or Tongue Slip on Special Status?
Conrad Doyle | 15 February, 2018, 19:08

The TDP had announced that it would take a crucial decision by March 5, and what was the point of waiting till April 5 when Parliament session would conclude, he questioned.

Mounting pressure on the central and state governments for granting Special Category Status (SCS) to Andhra Pradesh, YSR Congress Party president Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy said his party MPs would resign if the demand was not conceded before the end of the Budget Session in April first week.

Special Status is the only lifeline of Andhra Pradesh and not the Special Package.

The differences between BJP and TDP show no signs of abating with the former being secure that Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu does not have any option of an alliance outside the NDA and the saffron party keeping the doors open for Jagan Mohan Reddy-led YSRCP to walk in post Lok Sabha elections if it needs the numbers. The fight for SCS will go on concurrently with the Budget Session and if nothing is forthcoming on April 6, the last day of the session, our MPs will quit in protest and further intensify the struggle for SCS.

"How many times has Jagan announced that his MPs will resign for special status?..."

"The campaign for SCS with the slogan, "Hodha mana hakku, Package tho mosapovoddu" (SCS is our right, do not be cheated by Special Package) will be a nation-wide one", he added further while addressing a public meeting as part of the Praja Sankalpa Yatra in Kaligiri of Nellore district. "However, in month of January, the state government suggested alternative methods, and solution is likely to be finalised soon", Jaitley said in his address at the Rajya Sabha. While both parties are aware that the 14th Finance Commission has made it clear that no state can be given special status, it has not prevented them from raking up this issue.
