As of Monday, February 11, the Chief Minister of Andra Pradesh state, Chandrababu Naidu, is observing a fast in the Andra Pradesh Bhavan area of the capital New Delhi to demand that a special category status be granted to the state. Leaders of several opposition parties, supporters and members of the civil society are expected to show solidarity to Naidu in Delhi.
Fasting Chief Minister Naidu claim that there is anger among the population of Andra Pradesh as Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not mention the long-pending demand of special category status during his visit to the state on February 10.
Individuals present in New Delhi are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, and avoid the area of fasting as large gatherings are possible, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
