'Sudhakar's death not a suicide, but Chandrababu govt's murder'

Tirupati: YSR Congress Party leader Bhumana Karunakar Reddy offered his condolences to the family of the person who ended his life demanding Special Category Status (SCS) to Andhra Pradesh.

Speaking to media here today he said it was unfortunate that a young man committed suicide. Sudhakar, a handloom weaver from Madanapalli, took the extreme step to protest against the state and Central government's attitude towards granting SCS to AP

Bhumana said Sudhakar's death was not a suicide but it was AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu government's murder. He said without resigning from their posts, TDP MPs and Chandrababu were staging dramas to deceive the people of the state. SCS is now the common sentiment of people and it was time state government realised this, he said.

He recalled an earlier occasion wherein Munikoti from Tirupati had committed suicide, and the call given by YSRCP President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy to people not to resort to suicides. He requested people to not give up their lives. He called upon people to stay alive and fight for SCS. "Let us fight until SCS was awarded to the state," he said.

It is reported that Sudhakar (26) had left a suicide mentioning 'SCS is our Right' .
