Congress Plans Protest Against Amit Shah’s Visit
Amaravati: The Andhra Pradesh Congress is getting ready to hold protest marches during the visit of BJP national president Amit Shah to the State on May 25. Even as the BJP leadership is sprucing up the State for the mega event, the Congress leaders are planning to hold protest rallies with black flags across the State.
The APCC president N Raghuveera Reddy had appealed to the rank and file of the party to hold protests across the State when Amit Shah arrives in the State. He blamed the BJP leadership for going back on the Special Category Status to the State, a promise that was made during the elections. He also critciised the BJP leadership on railway zone for the State, backward districts fund for Rayalaseema and north Andhra and all other promises made to the State at the time of bifurcation.
Raghuveera recalled that the BJP-TDP combine have promised 15 years of special category status and alleged that the two parties have betrayed the people by going back on it. He wanted the Congress workers to question Amit Shah on the betrayal and expose the BJP. He said that the Congress is the only party that had been fighting for the bifurcation promises right from the beginning. He alleged that the BJP had gone back while the TDP and the YSR Congress parties have compromised with the BJP.
