Amaravati (Andhra Pradesh) [India], Mar. 19 (ANI): Though the Lok Sabha was adjourned on Monday before the opposition could move the motion for no-trust vote, the YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) said the party would continue to the motion to pressure the Centre to grant special category status to Andhra Pradesh.

Talking to ANI, YSRCP leader K Parthsarathi said, "We will continue to move a no-confidence motion as long as the debate is taking place and facts are brought to the notice of the nation, and also to pressurise the Centre to grant special category status to Andhra Pradesh."

Earlier in the day, the Communist Party of India (CPI) also extended their support for the no-confidence motion.

CPI leader Duraisamy Raja said, "As far as the Left parties are concerned, we will be supporting the no-confidence motion. People have started expressing their no confidence in Modi government, it is time Parliament does it too."

Yesterday, the YSRCP gave a notice to the Lok Sabha General-Secretary seeking to move a no-confidence motion in the lower house today against the Centre for its refusal to grant special category status to Andhra Pradesh.

The Opposition party in Andhra Pradesh has been protesting in the Parliament over the non-issuance of special category status to the state.

The ruling Telugu Desam Party (TDP), too, reached a deadlock with its ally BJP over this issue and ultimately quit the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) coalition on Friday. (ANI)
