Fight for special status will continue, says Jagan Mohan Reddy
Reiterating that special status is the only way for development and employment generation, Leader of Opposition and YSR Congress Party chief, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said that the fight for special status would continue and the youth should come forward to question the political leaders who go back on their poll promises.
Addressing a large gathering of youth at the Yuva Bheri programme held in Nellore today, he deplored that there are efforts to water down the demand for special status by vested interests.

"But our fight should continue relentlessly," Jagan added.

He accused that democracy has been shattered with Parliament witnessing double speak as the BJP-TDP combine that had sought 10 year special status while in opposition and had also included it in the election manifesto and after coming to power started searching ways to evade the issue.

He alleged that Chandrababu Naidu who is facing many corruption charges including the cash for vote scam watered it down by telling that Special Status is not a cure-all medicine to all problems and on many occasions spoke against it and did not broach the subject when the occasion arose.

Reddy said that emboldened by Naidu's behavior the Centre had told in the Parliament categorically that it is not possible to accord special status to Andhra Pradesh and brought in 14th Finance Commission into the picture.
