YSR Congress calls Seemandhra shutdown Friday

Hyderabad, Dec 5 : YSR Congress has called for a shutdown Friday to protest the union cabinet's decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh by carving out separate Telangana state.

Without naming Seemandhra (Rayalaseema and coastal Andhra), YSR Congress president Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy appealed to all people of the regions to be affected by the cabinet's decision to participate in the shutdown.

Jagan, as the MP is popularly known, termed the cabinet approval for Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Bill, as another step for destroying the state.

He alleged that Congress took the decision for votes and seats while ignoring the protest of 75 percent of the state's population.

Jagan, who had been mobilizing support of various regional and national parties to keep the state united, appealed to government employees, workers and farmers to voluntarily observe the shutdown.
