YSR Congress President Y S Jaganmohan Reddy on Friday said that he would undertake an indefinite fast from Saturday against the Centre’s decision to divide Andhra Pradesh.
A delegation of YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) would go to Delhi to meet the President and others to highlight the injustice being meted out to Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema,Jagan said.
The agitations being organised by his party would continue across the state,he said. He wondered how can the state be divided without the important issue being taken up in the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly,which has been the well-established practice.
Highlighting the dispute between states like Karnataka and Tamil Nadu,he asked how the water would be shared post the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. He also highlighted the problem of revenue for the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh without Hyderabad,from where major chunk of revenue comes.
Seeking to mount pressure on TDP,he said the main Opposition should change its stance in favour of united Andhra Pradesh.
