Congress to burn PM's effigy for not giving special status to Andhra Pradesh


Hyderabad, Oct 22: The state unit of Congress has called for a programme to burn the effigy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to protest against not getting a favourable mention on special category status for Andhra Pradesh and special package for Rayalaseem and North Coastal areas.

The Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee in a statement alleged that the Prime Minister who today laid foundation stone for AP capital Amaravati did not mention anything on the "Special Category Status" to the state.

"We call for a programme tomorrow to burn Modi's effigy," it added.

"The people of AP expected a categorical assurance from the PM on the Special category Status for the state besides implementing all provisions in the AP Reorganisation Act. However, they were thoroughly disappointed," the statement said.

The party accused Modi of cheating the people of AP and opined that he would pay price in future for not "honouring" the promises made before elections.
