AP special status: State bandh today

On Monday, a state-wide bandh will be held in Andhra Pradesh by a people’s forum, fighting for special category status to the state. The bandh has been called by Andhra Pradesh Pratyeka Hoda Saadhana Samiti.
The opposition party, YSR Congress, Congress and Left parties have extended their support to the shut down call.
But the ruling TDP has opposed it.
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu said that bandhs were not welcome as they hamper the development.
