VIJAYAWADA: Terming as a great betrayal the denial of special category status for Andhra Pradesh, Jana Sena Chief Pawan Kalyan on Thursday said that the special package offered in lieu of the status was nothing but funds under different heads which are given to all states including Andhra Pradesh.

"After coming to power with promise of SCS to AP, the the BJP went back on its promise and thrust two rotten laudds into the hands of the people under the travesty of Special Package,’" Pawan tweeted.

Reiterating that AP demands coveted SCS, he wanted Narasaraopet TDP MP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao, not to compromise on SCS for Polavaram project contract. He said that such business attitude had led to the popular belief in Telangana that Andhras are plunderers.

Stating that the politicians had no right to ruin the future of future generations for their selfish motives, he said that it was natural that Rayapati Sambasiva Rao will not fight for SCs and would instead obstruct those agitating for it. By doing so, he would turn the lush green fields into dumping yard by executing Polavaram irrigation projects and raking in a moolah in the process.

Pawan Kalyan also took exception to Union Minister of Science and Technology YS Chowdary for comparing the fighting spirit of youth with pigs fights and said that such loose talk will instigate the youth much more. He asked the students to keep a watch on those who resort to this kind of tongue-lashing.

Lauding all those youth who participated in the movement for SCS, he demanded the unconditional release of all those arrested who included Jana Sena activists.
