Mounting pressure on the central and state governments for granting Special Category Status (SCS) to Andhra Pradesh, YSR Congress Party president Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy said his party MPs would resign if the demand was not conceded before the end of the Budget Session in April first week.

He said the fight would be intensified, and appealed to the people not to be cheated by special packages.

Addressing the public in Kaligiri of Nellore district on Tuesday, Jagan set a firm deadline and said his party MPs will quit on April 6 if special category status was not accorded by then. As a run-up to the deadline, the YSRC will draw up an action plan to mount pressure, hold state-wide protests and lay siege to collector offices in all the 13 districts on March 1.

There will also be a nationwide campaign with the slogan 'SCS is our right, do not be cheated by Special Package', he said, addressing a public meeting as part of the Praja Sankalpa Yatra. "The fight will be taken to the national capital, with party MPs, MLAs and other leaders marching to Parliament on March 5," he said.

The fight will continue on various forums for SCS inside and outside Parliament throughout the Budget Session and if there is no response from the Centre, all party MPs would submit their resignations on April 6.

He also hit out at the TDP and said the Chandrababu Naidu government has always been on a path of compromise.
