Special status is our right. We are not begging for our rights, adds Chalasani Srinivas,president of Special Category Status Sadhana Samithi. YSRCP president Jagan also called for a bandh as a protest against the centre for not announcing special status.All the parties are taking a single stand and supporting the bandh. TDP and BJP alliance should not continue. TDP should come out of the alliance and should work with the other parties.
Alliances and personal benefits are not bigger than people's aspirations, adds Jagan. Chandrababu Naidu failed to create an impact on the central government. He should resign. How he would accept the special package offered by the central government. We are ready to fight for the special status, further adds Jagan. Congress party already started protests across the state.
