YSR Congress asks people to refrain from suicide and join Aug 29 bandh
Reiterating its appeal to refrain from committing suicide for Special Status, YSR Congress has appealed people to participate in large numbers to make the August 29 bandh a grand success and tell the State and Centre in no uncertain terms the mood of the people on the issue.

Party spokesperson, Vasireddy Padma said that people are willing to forego the festivities of Raksha Bandhan for a more noble cause and participate in the bandh after Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu had made it very clear that he is for a special package and not special status.

YSR Congress accused the state government of misusing the police force to foil the bandh by preventive arrests and other undemocratic methods as seen in the past.

According to a release, Padma said, "Special status is our right and we need not beg for it as Chandrababu Naidu has been cutting a sorry figure and trying to project that the Special Package is a boon." 

She pointed out that Bihar Chief Minister, Nitish Kumar has ripped open the hidden intricacies of the special package announced by the Centre and proved that it is just a shade more than what is due to the State and insisted that he will settle for nothing short of Special Status.

She suggested that the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister should emulate from his Bihar counterpart and force the Centre to yield to the mood of the people. "Without the incentives that the Special status can give us, how can we compete with other states and develop industrially and economically," Padma asked.
