AICC Vice-President Rahul Gandhi has accused the BJP-led NDA Government of deliberately delaying the Special Status for Andhra Pradesh State.
Speaking to media persons in New Delhi on Monday, Rahul Gandhi said that the previous Congress-led UPA Government has promised Special Status to AP in the Reorganisation Act itself at the time of bifurcation of the State. He said it was the responsibility of the Centre to implement the AP Reorganisation Act.
Rahul Gandhi also expressed condolences over the suicide committed by a Congress worker Munikoti demanding Special Status. He said that the Congress party would continue its struggle till AP gets Special Status. (INN)
