Granting of Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh by the Centre would top the list of issues to be raised by YSR Congress in the ensuing session of Parliament, beginning from November 26.

Briefing media after YSR Congress president Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy met the MPs and discussed the issues to be raised in Parliament, the party floor leader in Lok Sabha Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy said it was the responsibility of the Centre to fulfil all the commitment made during the passage of the AP Reorganisation Bill in Parliament.

He faulted Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu for not mentioning about SCS status during the foundation stone laying for Amaravati by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

He said that special status was promised to Andhra Pradesh in lieu of foregoing Hyderabad and this compensation could not be equalled by any other measure, except fulfilling the commitment on special status.

Stating that special package was not a substitute for SCS, Mr. Reddy said all other promises, including the setting up of a separate Railway Zone would have to be implemented by the Centre.

Hike in the MSP for farmers and demanding the Centre to instruct the Food Corporation of India to procure paddy from farmers were the other important issues that would be raised by YSRC in Parliament.
