Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Friday met Union Home Minister Amit Shah in New Delhi.
In his 15-minute meeting, YS Jagan raised the issue of special category status for Andhra Pradesh.
“I took an appointment with Home Minister today (Friday) evening to try and prevail on him, to also soften PM’s heart on special category status… what we will definitely be asking for in tomorrow’s (Saturday’s) NITI Aayog meeting,” YS Jagan Said.
He further added, “The agenda of my visit was tomorrow’s NITI Aayog meeting. Tomorrow we will be presenting our case to the NITI Aayog, which is chaired by the Prime Minister.”
He also reacted on the rumours that Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker’s post will be offered to his YSR Congress Party.
For this he said, “First of all there is nothing offered. We haven’t asked, neither any proposal of that sort have come from any quarter. So please don’t speculate these kind of things.”
