Rahul Gandhi Farooq Abdulla Join Chandrababu Naidu

By Preeti Sigh On 11 Feb, 2019

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is sitting on a day-long fast in Delhi today to demand special status for the state. The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief launched his ''Dharma Porata Deeksha'' (a day-long protest for justice) at the Andhra Pradesh Bhavan to urge the centre to fulfil promises made when Telangana was carved out of Andhra Pradesh in 2014. Mr Naidu paid tributes to Mahatma Gandhi at Raj Ghat and the Ambedkar Statue at the Andhra Pradesh Bhavan before starting his protest. Mr Naidu's protest was joined by Congress President Rahul Gandhi, National Conference's Farooq Abdullah and Nationalist Congress Party's Majeed Memon. The TDP had exited the BJP-led NDA last year over what its chief described as "injustice" done to Andhra Pradesh after its bifurcation. Mr Naidu accused the Narendra Modi government of going back on a long-awaited promise of special state status for Andhra Pradesh.
