Naidu cheating people by going on hunger strike: YSRCP chief

ANI  |  Krishna (Andhra Pradesh) [India] 

Congress Party (YSRCP) on Thursday referred the hunger strike called by Minister against the Centre's non-cooperation as a mean to cheat the people of the state.

Speaking to ANI, the YSRCP said that it would have been better if the (TDP) chief would have asked his MPs to go on strike with the YSRCP one's to push the (SCS).

"He is cheating people again. What happened when all YSRCP MPs resigned and went on hunger strike? If he would've gotten his MPs to do the same then, it would've created buzz and the Centre would've given special status to the state," Reddy said.

Naidu earlier announced that he will sit on a one-day hunger strike against the Centre's non-cooperation of the state on April 20.

The politicians have been protesting demanding Special Category Status (SCS) for Andhra Pradesh, which was promised by the Center during the bifurcation of the state in 2014.
