The discussion of Special Category Status has been triggered in Rajya Sabha by Congress today and all the other parties supported this which left the house in shock. The upper house took up the discussion on convening National Development Council(NDC) and the concept of SCS. KVP Ramachandra Rao, T Subbirami Reddy, Jai Ram Ramesh, D Raja, Naresh Agarwal and others demanded special status for Andhra Pradesh.
They revealed that AP has no capital after the state bifurcation and it has been left in deep financial crisis. They said that NDA should step down and grant special status of the state so that the state would develop soon and compete with other states.
