AP special status: YSRCP’s fast enters 4th day

72

The indefinite hunger strike by the Yuvajana Shramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) members entered the fourth day as part of the fight for Andhra Pradesh’s special category status.

The fast was launched on April 6 after five party MPs submitted their resignation letters to the Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan.

The agitation saw senior MPs Mekapati Raja Mohan Reddy (73) and Varaprasad Rao (64) getting admitted to the Ram Manohar Lohia hospital. In spite of their deteriorating health, they are continuing their hunger strike.

Meanwhile, YV Subba Reddy, Mithun Reddy and Avinash Reddy are continuing their protest fast at AP Bhawan in Delhi.
