Members of Parliament from the YSRC will resign on April 6 if the Centre does not accept the demand, party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy announced today.
YSRC MPs would fight for SCS in Parliament when the Budget Session resumes on March 5, he said.
"We will fight till April 6 and if the SCS issue is not settled, our MPs will quit their posts," Reddy said this evening at a public meeting at Kaligiri in SPS Nellore district.
However, one of the "defected" MPs, Kothapalli Geetha, said that she would not resign as she had severed ties with the party.
"The state was divided on the promise of granting SCS to (residuary) Andhra Pradesh. It's an elixir for the problems the state has been left with (on account of bifurcation). But, for the sake of commissions (through a special economic package), Chandrababu has sold away the special status," the Leader of Opposition said.
"Chandrababu questioned on June 6, 2017, what more benefits will the state get under SCS than a special package. He claims to be the most experienced political leader but he has only hoodwinked people all the time with false promises and claims," Reddy said.
