He invited the leaders irrespective of political affiliations to join hands to launch an agitation to bring pressure on the NDA government at the Centre to get the due share to the State. “The participation of all political parties, including the ruling TDP and main opposition YSRC, and the success of the Thursday bandh tell all about the outrage against the injustice meted out to AP.
