Amaravati, Sep 14 (IANS) Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy has convened a video conference of all YSRCP Members of Parliament (MPs) on Monday, to advise them on the strategy to be followed in the parliamentary meetings.
“Jagan will speak to party Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha members via video conference at 3 pm today. The strategy to be followed in the meetings of the Parliament will be discussed with the MPs,” a party official earlier said.
The strategy will focus on how to get the funds due to the southern state and raise the issue of special status for AP as a discussion point in the Parliament.
Though AP was promised special status during united AP bifurcation, it is yet to be accorded to the state.
