The YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) has called for an Andhra Pradesh shutdown on July 24 to protest the injustice being meted out to the state by the Centre.

The main opposition party on Saturday called upon all political parties to make the shutdown a success. It also demanded resignation of all MPs of the state’s ruling Telugu Desam Party (TDP).

A day after TDP’s no-confidence motion against the Narendra Modi government was defeated in Lok Sabha, YSRCP chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy said the TDP MPs should quit and sit on indefinite fast to press the demand for special category status to the state.

Talking to reporters in Kakinada, Jaganmohan Reddy said Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his reply to the debate revealed that the special package for the state was announced after Chief Minister N Chandrababu naidu agreed to the same.“Who is Chandrababu to agree for special package in lieu of special the status. Who has given right to the Centre and to Chandrababu to bargain on the rights of Andhra Pradesh people,” he asked.
