Vastavam Web: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu today launched the “Dharma Porata Deeksha”, a 12-hour hunger strike, demanding “justice” for the state from the Centre, including the special category status.
The chief minister, who turned 69 today, chose not to celebrate his birthday and sat on a fast instead to protest against the alleged injustice meted out to the state due to the “non-implementation” of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014. Several ministers in his government joined Naidu in the fast, which is being held in all the 13 districts of the state. State ministers are leading the protest in the district headquarters.
TDP legislators and party in-charge of 175 Assembly constituencies are also leading similar protests in their respective segments in solidarity with Naidu
