Andhra Pradesh Assembly Speaker Kodela Siva Prasad said that Centre is bound to grant Special Status to the newly formed AP as per its promise. There is no need for agitation on this issue, as all parties have earlier extended support to it. Addressing the media, the Speaker said that no party is against granting of Special Status to AP as the state has no capital, no infrastructures, no investments, no public undertakings, less private industries, less revenue generation due to revenue deficit etc . He said that just pressuring the Centre, reminding its promises, will serve the purpose.
