AP shuts down over special category status demand

Andhra Pradesh (AP) observed a state-wide bandh today over its demand for special category status.

The bandh called by the Pratyeka Hoda Sadhana Samithi was supported by the YSR Congress, Congress, Left parties and others.

Activists blocked roads in Vijayawada, Visakhapatnam, Rajahmundry, Guntur, Nellore, Kakinada, Srikakulam, Kadapa and Chittoor.

Barring minor incidents, the bandh was largely successful, despite the CM opposing it.
