Jagan Mohan Reddy asks youth to join the fight for special status to Andhra Pradesh
Appealing the youth to join the fight for achieving special status to the State while calling the only way to put the state on the path of development, YSRCP chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said that Chandrababu Naidu has been putting his personal agenda ahead of state interests and has not been questioning the Centre on the issue.

The leader of opposition recalled that it was Narendra Modi, who shared the dais with Venkaiah Naidu and Chandrababu Naidu at Tirupati during electioneering, who assured that special status would be accorded to Andhra Pradesh if the NDA is voted to power but has gone back now.

He said that the Chief Minister cannot broach the subject as he has to wriggle out of the cash for vote and other scams and he places his personal interests ahead of state development,' the Leader of Opposition said addressing the Yuva Bheri here on Tuesday as part of creating awareness on the special status and its benefits including the employment opportunities to the youth.

He accused that the credibility of the leader is at stake if he goes back on the promise and that is exactly what is happening as the Centre and State governments do not speak of special status and the youth will be deprived of employment opportunities.

The special status gives the state an edge over other states as 90 per cent of the central funding would be in the form of grants which need not be repaid besides there would rapid industrialization as there would be many concessions in the form of exemption of taxes and duty which leads to the growth of employment opportunities manifold as it has happened in Uttarkhand that has seen a rise of 490 per cent hike in jobs after getting special status.
