YSR Congress party leaders on Tuesday submitted a letter to President Ram Nath Kovind requesting his intervention to prevail upon the Central Government to grant Special Category Status (SCS) to Andhra Pradesh.
Naidu will sit on hunger strike on April 20 in Vijayawada against the Centre over the demand of SCS.
The Centre and Andhra Pradesh government have been at the loggerheads over the SCS issue ever since the announcement of 2018-19 Union Budget.
The TDP alleged that the BJP-led Centre ignored the demand of SCS to Andhra Pradesh in the budget.
