KCR backs special category status for Andhra Pradesh

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on Monday said his Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) would support the special category status for neighbouring Andhra Pradesh.

His announcement at an election rally came a day before the campaigning is to end for elections in both the Telugu states and it appears to bolster prospects of his ally YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) in Andhra Pradesh, where simultaneous elections are being held for the Assembly.

KCR, as Rao is popularly known, has, for the first time, publicly announced support for special status and it came amid the continuing attack by the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) on the YSRCP for joining hands with the TRS without the latter giving any assurance on the issue.
