Andhra CM on day-long hunger strike, demands special status for the state

Mr. Gandhi criticized Modi government for not fulfilling its promises, “What kind of a prime minister is this, who can’t fulfil a promise he made to the people of Andhra Pradesh. Is Andhra Pradesh not a part of this country that he is not fulfilling the commitment he made to the state? Mr. Modi has got no credibility left. I assure you, in coming days the Opposition will show BJP its true place.”

In his strike under the banner of ‘Dharma Porata Deeksha’, Andhra CM said, “We are seeking justice. We are a part of the country. I am asking national media to show solidarity to us.

Is Andhra Pradesh not a part of this country that he is not fulfilling the commitment he made to the state? Mr. Modi has got no credibility left. I assure you, in coming days the Opposition will show BJP its true place.”
