Members of Parliament from the YSR Congress will resign on April 6 if the Centre did not accept the demand to grant special category status to Andhra Pradesh, party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy announced today.
He said that YSRC MPs would fight for the SCS in Parliament when the Budget session resumes on March 5.
"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 lashed out.
"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.
