Meeting Union Home Minister Amit Shah ahead of the Niti Aayog meeting, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy on Friday said that he will be demanding for special category status at the NITI Aayog meeting tomorrow.
"I took an appointment with Home Minister Amit Shah today evening to try and prevail on him and to also soften the Prime Minister's heart on special category status that we'll definitely be asking for in tomorrow's NITI Aayog meeting," said Jagan Mohan Reddy.
Dismissing reports of the post of Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker being offered to his party YSRCP, Reddy said, "First of all nothing has been asked for or offered. We haven't asked. Neither has any proposal of that sort come from any quarter. So please don't speculate these kinds of things."
