Yuvajana Shramika Rythu Congress Party has given an Adjournment Motion notice in Lok Sabha over special status to Andhra Pradesh. Party's national general secretary, V Vijayasai Reddy, called for the motion in Rajya Sabha.

Both the houses of Parliament were adjourned after an uproar broke over the issue on Monday. The upper house was adjourned till 2 pm, while the lower house was adjourned for the day.

YSR and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) party members were seen staging protests in the Parliament complex.


The tussle over Andhra Pradesh's special status intensified after the Modi government announced Union Budget 2018-19.

According to TDP, the central government did not give importance to the state in the budget. Last week, TDP chief and Andhra Chief Minister, Chandrababu Naidu, decided to pull out from the NDA alliance.
