Chandrababu turns 68 today – to observe day-long 'Dharma Poratam Deeksha' as a mark of protest
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu has started his twelve-hour fast demanding Special Category Status in a luxurious manner amidst fanfare at the Indira Gandhi Municipal Stadium in Vijayawada today.

In his support, ministers belonging to all the thirteen district headquarters of the state along with the district presidents of the TDP are also fasting.

As it is a state fast like a state visit, officials are fully engaged in making arrangements bringing people to the venue of the fast and taking care of the visitors so that they don't suffer in the blazing summer heat. Before starting the fast, the Chief Minister was blessed by the religious priests of various religions.

Except for the TDP, no other political party is participating in this 'Dharma Poratam Deeksha'.  In recent times Chandrababu has usually stressed that any agitation regarding the SCS should be held in Delhi to directly bring it in to Prime Minister Modi's notice but this time he has chosen the interim capital Vijayawada for the purpose.
