Vijayasai Reddy Speech In Rajya Sabha Over AP Special Status
Rajya Sabha has witnessed the discussion on AP special status. YSRCP MP Vijayasai Reddy while demanding special category status(SCS) to the state has emphasized that it is a part of the AP Re-organization Act. YSRCP Rajya Sabha MP said the moment the AP state has been bifurcated, the need for special status to the state is felt. Vijayasai Reddy has alleged that the central ministers have been misleading the SCS issue in the name of Finance Commission guidelines. YSRCP MP has reminded that the Finance Commission members have submitted in the written form that the SCS issue does not come under their purview. He has appealed the center to give SCS to the state apart from fulfilling other promises mentioned in the state re-organization act. He has reminded the assurances given by the previous government on the SCS issue and the present government ignoring it. SCS is a condition to pass the state re-organization act, YSRCP MP said. He said there was no mention of the SCS in the presidential address and added that there was no terms of reference of the SCS when the 14th finance commission is formed. In the drafting of the 15th finance commission also, there were no terms of reference pertaining to the SCS issue, Vijayasai Reddy has alleged.
