Hyderabad: Senior YSR Congress party leader Botsa Satyanarayana announced that YSRCP would organise Vanchana Pi Garjana (Deception Day) on June 2 in Nellore to protest against the negligent attitude of State and Central governments with regard to allotting Special Category Status (SCS) to Andhra Pradesh. Talking to media here at party headquarters today, Botsa said from the day the state was bifurcated, YSRCP was relentlessly fighting for SCS while the State and Central government seemed unconcerned.
Protesting against the BJP-led NDA government's response to the demand for SCS to AP, YSRCP had issued notices for moving a no-confidence motion in Lok Sabha several times. The party MPs also gave up their Lok Sabha seats in protest, the YSRCP leader said. He pointed out that YSRCP would continue to fight for SCS to AP till it is granted.
As part of protests, YSRCP had organised Vanchana Pi Garjana (Deception Day) on April 30 in Visakhapatnam and would repeat the protest on June 2 in Nellore. The five YSRCP MPs who quit Lok Sabha along with MLAs, MLCs and senior party leaders would participate in the programme sporting black badges and black shirts, Botsa said. He criticised TDP's Mahanadu and said AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu was celebrating in the name of Mahanadu while the state was suffering due to his misdeeds.
Botsa observed that Chandrababu, on the day of swearing-in as CM, had signed five files. But none of them had been implemented. He said that the TDP government had failed to restrict belt shops; supply 20 litres of drinking water for Rs 2 under the NTR Sujala Sravanti scheme, and had not even waived loans of farmers or DWCRA groups.
