Life affected in Andhra Pradesh by opposition-sponsored shutdown over special status issue

Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu said bandhs were not welcome as they hamper development.

The Chief Minister made it clear that he will not compromise on securing interests of the state.

The ruling Telugu Desam Party in Andhra Pradesh, as well as various political parties in the state, have been protesting against the Centre for a while for not fulfilling its promise to accord a special status for the state after the state of Andhra Pradesh was bifurcated into Telangana and the residuary Andhra Pradesh state in 2014.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by one sister, Christine Smotherman, and three brothers, Leon Cooper, R.L. Viewing from 1 to 2 p.m., time of funeral services, Tuesday, Kresge Funeral Home, Route 209, Brodheadsville.

He appealed to the people of Andhra Pradesh to give the TDP all 25 MP seats to play a crucial role at the Centre. Schools and banks as well as government offices will remain open and working despite the bandh. The Opposition parties such as YSR Congress Party, Congress and Left parties have extended their support to the bandh. Slamming the chief minister for maintaining "double standards", YSRC political affairs committee member Ambati Rambabu told news agency PTI, "When Naidu was the opposition leader, he had called for bandhs on many occasions, but as a chief minister he is now opposing them (bandhs), saying they hinder development". The ruling Telugu Desam Party (TDP), though supporting the cause, chose to stay away from the agitation.

Protests demanding special status for Andhra Pradesh gained speed after there was no mention of a special package for the state in the Union Budget. The police have stepped up security across the state.

Earlier, the Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan had declared that he was snapping the alliance with N Chandrababu Naidu's Telugu Desam Party (TDP). The Jana Sena Party president had also attacked Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for saying that he had hurt the sentiments of the Andhra people by saying that special status can not be given a special status category.
