MPs of several parties including TDP, YSR Congress and AIADMK, continued their protests over special status for Andhra Pradesh and constitution of Cauvery river management board respectively.

The chief minister said that the National Democratic Alliance government could not shirk its responsibility of giving special category status to Andhra Pradesh, because the BJP had also played a role in bifurcation. Meanwhile, TDP MPs staged a protest in front of the Mahatma Gandhi statue on Parliament premises holding placards demanding justice to the State.

The Telugu Desam Party on Sunday nominated sitting MP CM Ramesh and noted lawyer Kanakamedala Ravindra Kumar for the two Rajya Sabha seats it is contesting in Andhra Pradesh. The only Congress member protesting in the Well was K.V.P Ramachandra Rao from Andhra Pradesh.
