Demanding special status for Andhra Pradesh, the YSR Congress Party has also decided to launch a nation-wide campaign, ‘hodha mana hakku, package tho mosapovaddu’, pledging that YSRCP will not compromise until the state gets Special Category status.

"Special Category status is the right of every citizen of Andhra Pradesh", Jagan added.
