  • Congress Party MP KVP Ramachandra Rao holds a placard demanding special category status for Andhra Pradesh during the Parliament Budget Session in New Delhi

"If special category status is not given to Andhra Pradesh by April 5, YSRCP MPs will resign on April 6", the party said in a statement. The Congress leader later tweeted that a united Opposition can force the Centre "to do justice to the people of Andhra [Pradesh]".

The protest on Tuesday was a continuation of the protest on Monday, where both Houses of Parliament had to be adjourned after MPs started slogans asking for the demands of the state to be met. He added that his party MPs might join hands with Andhra Pradesh MPs in their protests if the latter are open to it. "I am confident that if we stand together we will convince the Government of India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi that what is due to the people of Andhra Pradesh should be given to them at once", he said.

Further, the Chief Minister refused to compromise on the matters of the state interest citing the State Reorganization Act.
