Rise above politics: YSRCP to TDP MPs
New Delhi: Two YSR Congress leaders, whose indefinite hunger strike in the national capital entered the fifth day today, urged Telugu Desam Party (TDP) MPs to rise above politics and resign from the Lok Sabha to press for the demand of special category status (SCS) for Andhra Pradesh.
Former YSRCP MP P V Midhun Reddy said, "Our only request to TDP MPs is to keep politics aside and we shall fight for this together. All of them must resign and join our protest to make the NDA government accept our demand. This is a state issue and not a personal one."
"In Rajasthan, we have seen the government offering loan waivers after the BJP government lost in LS bypolls early this year. No government wants to lose bypolls when general elections are around the
corner, so we believe they will give us SCS if we try this," Reddy said.
