Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Monday morning started a day-long hunger strike in New Delhi to demand special status for AP and urge the centre to fulfil promises made when Telangana was carved out of Andhra Pradesh in 2014.
Chandababu Naidu said, “(Former PM) Atal Bihari Vajpayee said ”Raj Dharma” was not followed in Gujarat (during the 2002 riots). Now,“Raj Dharma” is not being followed in the case of Andhra Pradesh. We have been denied what is rightfully ours. If you don’t get it done, we know how to get it done.”
