Andhra special status issue: YSR Congress Chief Jagan Mohan Reddy to go on indefinite fast from Oct 7
YSR Congress Party chief Jagan Mohan Reddy's indefinite fast demanding special status to Andhra Pradesh would be held at Guntur from October 7 to mount pressure on the Centre.

The party said that this decision was taken at a high level meeting. Senior leader Botsa Satyanarayana said that the party would suggest alternative venue to the officials if the present venue is not approved. 

He accused Andhra CM Chandrababu Naidu of ignoring the issue saying that he has been trading the state development for his political gains and to wriggle out of the various scams he is facing.

"As the TDP government is not showing any interest in getting the special status from the NDA coalition, of which it is a part, our Party President and Leader of Opposition YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will be taking up indefinite fast to mount pressure on the Centre," Botsa Satyanarayana.

He added, "We are also approaching the District Administration with alternative venues for the Deeksha and in the two days, we hope to get a nod in which case the point of moving the court may not arise."

He made it clear that they are leaving no stone unturned to take up the indefinite fast as YSR Congress is in favour of the development of the State. The party claimed that Chandrababu Naidu and his government have different priorities and are moving in the direction of commercialization of administration.

YSR Congress once again raised objection over the language and remarks of Chandrababu Naidu against Jagan's fast and called it full of arrogance. 

"His tone suggests that he is elected chief minister for life, but democracy has decimated many towering leaders while he is just small twig," said Botsa, according to a post on YSR Congress's website.

YSR Congress said that it was determined to carry out the indefinite fast from October 7 and will go ahead with it at any cost. "We will cross all hurdles as our fight is the fight for the people and for their welfare," Botsa added.
