Jagan demands CM’s Resignation
- Questions midnight announcement
- Appeals for support to bandh
Hyderabad: YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, opposition leader in AP, has demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu for letting down the people. CM should apologise to the people for welcoming the midnight statement of Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley denying Special Status to AP.
Chandrababu Naidu has not been allowing the opposition to speak in the Assembly. The CM has mortgaged the interests of the people of AP at the feet of the NDA government to save his skin in the ‘Note for Vote’ case in which he was caught red handed. Jagan questioned the midnight statement by Arun Jaitley. Thousands of unemployed have been waiting for jobs for more than two and half years. Had the Special Category Status been granted, industries would have been established in AP and numerous jobs would have been created. Denying the status is to deprive the youths of jobs, said YS Jagan.
Jagan said Arun Jaitley has done nothing special to AP. All the institutions that are coming to AP are there in other States fit years. He questioned Arun Jaitley’s claim the the 14th Finance Commission was against Special Status. Abhijit Singh, a member of the Finance Commission, write to Rajya Sabha Member Jairam Ramesh that the Finance Commission did not recommend abolition of Special Category Status. Even if the Commission has recommended such a move it is not binding on the government. Why did Venkaiah Naidu insist in Rajya Sabha on Special Status when the Re-organisation Bill was being debated if the status is not very important, asked Jagan.
YS Jagan listed various benefits that would flow into the State if Special Status were to be given. He appealed to the people to support the bandh.
