Accept Our Resignations

Seeking support to their fight for Special Category Status (SCS), YSR Congress Party MPs met Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan and requested her to accept their resignations. The Parliamentarians met the Speaker at her office on Tuesday here. We have resigned for our posts in protest of the Centre's denial to accord the SCS to Andhra Pradesh.

Prior to their appointment with the Speaker, the group of YSRCP MPs gathered for a meeting at MP Mekapati Raja Mohan Reddy's residence here. Speaking to media on the occassion, MP Vara Prasad said, "We have resigned for our posts to fight for the SCS, which Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu failed to achieve. He has ignored the interests of the state in pursuit of personal benefits. YSRCP has been fighting for the SCS from the beginning. Development of AP is possible only with the achievement of SCS."

MP Mithun Reddy said they will seek immediate acceptance of their resignations from the Lok Sabha Speaker. "We are hoping for the Speaker's aceeptance of our resignations. YSRCP Chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is working hard for the prosperity of the people of the state. Chandrababu took U-turns by changing stances frequently. We are ready for bypolls.," he added.
