Tirupati: YSR Congress Party senior leader Bhumana Karunakar Reddy staged a protest by sitting in front of the Gandhi statue here today. The YSRCP leader along with his supporters sat on a protest demanding the Special Category Status (SCS) to Andhra Pradesh. Speaking to media during the protest, Bhumana accused the AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu of misleading the people with his one-day hunger strike. He questioned the AP CM as to why he was silent about SCS to AP over the last four years.
The YSRCP leader alleged that Chandrababu had not spoken about SCS since he was afraid about the cases against him would surface once again. He added that it was only due to the efforts of their party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy that people became aware of SCS and its benefits. "And this was the reason for Chandrababu to take a u turn," he added.
