AP PCC Chief Raghuveera Reddy reiterated Special Category Status will be accorded to the state soon after the swearing-in ceremony of Rahul Gandhi. He pledged, 'In case if Congress fails to keep its promise, Won't return to AP for the rest of my life'.
Raghuveer Reddy claimed that ultimate goal of the Congress Party is to ensure AP receives Special Status in 2019. He added, 'I would bring Special Status if Rahul becomes PM.
