Vastavam web: YSRCP chief Jagan announced couple of days back, that their party will observe state wide bandh this Tuesday to pressurise TDP members of parliament to resign from their posts in order to pressurise Union to grant special category status to AP. Bandh started this morning as several leaders of YSRCP demonstrated their strength and gathered crowds. There have been house arrest of some ysrcp leaders and even arrests of second grade leaders who are protesting on the roads.
When Jaganmohan Reddy gave the call for bandh, he taunted the TDP to support his call since it claims that it too was fighting for SCS. He wanted all other parties to support his call but there was no response from any one of them, including the left parties who are busy with their own agitation programmes to rouse people against the BJP.
However this time no other party supported bandh lead by YSRCP. It is obvious that ruling party will always oppose these kind of strikes no matter which party is in ruling. So, obviously TDP is opposing this Strike. But usually all other political parties except the ruling party support these kind of strikes. In last 4 years there have been several instances when Congress , CPI and CPM supported the demonstrations led by YSRCP. It seems CPI and CPM intentionally backed out this time.
Janasena leaders also did not participate in the strike today as there has been no call from Pawan Kalyan to support this Strike. However janasena General Secretary and 99 TV owner Thota Chandrasekhar announced that Pawan Kalyan will postpone his tour by one day so that Pawan store will not disrupt YSR CP band.
