The “success” of Jallikattu agitation by people of Tamil Nadu, that forced Centre to clear an Ordinance permitting the bull sport, seems to have inspired everyone in Andhra Pradesh who have now raised their voice for special category status (SCS) that has been “deprived” to the state, post bifurcation.
YS Jagan, who has been fighting for the demand ever since the state divided, joined hands with the youth for securing the promised SCS to the state.
Expressing readiness on behalf of YSRCP for anything in order to achieve special category status for AP, the leader of opposition in the state and YSRCP president, YS Jagan, called for everybody to come forward to unite for the cause.
The president of YSRCP in Visakhapatnam district, Gudiwada Amarnath, announced that a candlelight vigil would be held in the city on the 26th of January in support of sanction of special category status.
Take a look at the celebrities who expressed their support for the special demand protest
