Vijayawada (AP), Mar 22 (ANI): The YSR Congress Party and other opposition parties called for a State-wide 'bandh' after days of agitating against the Centre over granting special status category to the Andhra Pradesh. The protestors have blocked national highways across the state demanding special category status to the state. One of the protestors said, “From the last four years the Central and state government have been deceiving people. The then government promised Special Category Status, construction of Polavaram among others. But unfortunately they have not fulfilled any promised. This is nothing but an insult.” From past few days, the opposition parties have been trying to move a no-confidence motion against the Centre in the ongoing Parliament session.
