Statewide bandh observed in AP over special category status

The Pratyeka Hoda Sadhana Samithi has called a statewide bandh in the state of Andhra Pradesh demanding the Special Category Status (SCS) be granted to the state of Andhra.

No untoward incidents, except burning of a motorbike in Tirupati, have been reported so far during the bandh called by the Andhra Pradesh Pratyeka Hoda Saadhana Samiti.

While members of Left parties reportedly blocked the National Highway 16 which connects Kolkata and Chennai, ANI shared visuals where members of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) could be seen staging rasta roko. The ruling Telugu Desam Party had withdrawn its ministers in the Union cabinet and walked out of the NDA after the BJP-led Centre denied special category status to Andhra Pradesh.

Motorcycle set ablaze near RTC bus stand during statewide bandh called in Andhra Pradesh. However, reacting to this, the YSRC accused him of adopting "double standards". Meanwhile, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said that bandhs were not welcome as they "hamper development".

Rambabu also alleged that the Naidu government has been issuing notices to those supporting the bandh, saying cases would be booked against them.

Leaders and activists of opposition parties staged protests in different parts of the state.

The protests for special status for Andhra Pradesh gathered momentum in the past few months since political parties demanded "Special Category Status" a year ago. The Chief Minister said that a huge public meeting will be organised in Tirupati on April 30 with the theme "Let us save the state from betrayal and conspiracies". However, the Centre has been assuring the people of Andhra Pradesh that it will do everything to help the cause of Andhra people. The Chief Minister added that he is fighting against the Centre and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
