Jagan Reddy Meets PM Modi In Delhi After Massive Win In Andhra Pradesh
By Ndtv 26-May-2019
Jagan Mohan Reddy's YSR Congress Party has been elected to power with a massive mandate of 151 seats in the 175-member state assembly, virtually decimating Chandrababu Naidu's Telugu Desam Party that won just 23 seats. In the Lok Sabha, the YSR Congress Party lawmakers will now represent 22 of 25 state's parliamentary constituencies. The TDP has won just three Lok Sabha seats.
Jagan Mohan Reddy, responding to the astounding win, told NDTV on Thursday that he intends to pursue PM Modi for Andhra's Special Category Status and said he "will persist till he gives in".
Twenty-five Lok Sabha seats "should be enough to bring up the Special Status", he had said but didn't hide his concerns. He indicated that "with this kind of mandate in Delhi" for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, getting Special Status for his state may be difficult.
"Our demands for special status will always continue. I will personally take an appointment with PM Modi and meet him about this. We will continue to pursue the demands," the YSR Congress chief said.
