GUNTUR: With YSRC chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy deciding to stage an indefinite fast in the city to bring pressure on the Central government to accord special category status to the state, from September 26, senior leaders of the YSRC inspected the grounds opposite AC College and performed ‘Bhoomi Puja’ on Sunday.

After inspecting the ground, the senior leaders gave necessary directions to the local party cadre about the arrangements to be made for the ‘Deeksha’.

Speaking on the occasion, party senior leader Botcha Satyanarayana said YSRC would  fight until the special category status was achieved.

Recalling that Jaganmohan Reddy had already announced that he would go on an indefinite fast from September 25 if the government failed to come to provide clarity over the issue by that date, Satyanarayana called upon all sections of people irrespective of their party affiliations, caste and creed to extend support to ‘Deeksha’.

Describing special status as the lifeline of the state, he criticised chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu for failing to mount pressure on the Centre for getting the same.

Alleging that both the Centre and the State government had betrayed the people of the state without fulfilling the promises made during the state bifurcation, he said that the governments had once again resorting to dupe people in the name of packages.

Accusing the chief minister of mortgaging the interests of the state to the Centre with vested interests, he said YSRC as a responsible opposition party had taken up the issue and would ensure it was taken to its logical end.
