Pratyeka Hoda Sadhana Samithi demands special status for AP

Life affected in Andhra Pradesh by opposition-sponsored shutdown over special status issue

While Opposition parties such as the YSR Congress Party, Congress and Left Parties extended support for the bandh, the ruling TDP opposed the bandh. Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation buses will operate only till the state border in the wake of the statewide bandh, which means daily commuters are most likely to face problems as autos and taxis won't be easily available.

Reacting to the shutdown call, Naidu said bandhs were not welcome as they hamper development.

# 07:22 AM: West Godavari: Early morning visuals of the statewide bandh called in Andhra Pradesh over the demand of #SpecialStatus for the state. The Special Category Status row had led to the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu resigning from the NDA govenment over a month ago.

Russian Federation warns of "consequences' for Syria strikes"
Russian Federation and its ally Syria called the attack fabricated and said no evidence of chemical weapons use exists in Douma. The government, however, said evacuations from Douma were ongoing and no Syrian government forces had entered the town.

The Chief Minister said the BJP was trying to take the wind out of his sails as he continued to wield a considerable clout at the national level, and by doing politics with the YSR Congress Party (YSRCP), it (BJP) meant to keep Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy under its control. He also alleged that the government had issued notices to those who had declared their support for the shutdown, warning them that cases may be booked against them. "Why this intimidation? As long as they are peaceful, we will continue all forms of democratic protests", Rambabu was quoted as saying in the report.

The Protests for Special Status for Andhra Pradesh threatens to intensify with every passing day and can further add to the troubles of the government in Centre.

The Chief Minister made it clear that he will not compromise on securing interests of the state. However, the Centre has been assuring the people of Andhra Pradesh that it will do everything to help the cause of Andhra people.
