Analysts have come up with solid reasons for the flop of rallies that were proposed, at Vizag RK beach, Vijayawada and Tirupati. Social media was abuzz ahead of Republic Day, calling upon students and youth to collect at the three places, for protests demanding special status for Andhra Pradesh (AP). However, the response was poor. On the same platform of Facebook, Twitter and Whatsup, netizens had put up facts and information regarding why special package is equal to special status. Thinkers read this and restrained themselves. Also, police acted firmly, especially at Vizag, where CII Partnership Summit was to be held. Moreover, college students had exams. Analysts stated that only a politically mature youth will not participate in such rallies.
