[Video] The Kashmir effect on Andhra Pradesh SCS

Ever since the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, regional parties in the state have been clamouring for Special Category Status, a promise made by the then PM, Manmohan Singh in Parliament and endorsed by other parties, including the BJP. But after coming to power, the BJP has refused to grant SCS, instead asking the state to accept a special package.

Now after voting with the BJP on removing special status to Jammu and Kashmir, the same parties do not have a leg to stand on to demand special status to Andhra Pradesh.  

T S Sudhir explains how the Kashmir vote would impact Andhra Pradesh.
