Kurnool: Former Kurnool Mayor and senior TDP leader Bangi Ananthaiah drew the attention of onlookers by dressing himself up as a stunningly beautiful woman at the Collectorate here on Thursday, demanding Special Category Status (SCS) to Andhra Pradesh.

Few days ago, he rode a donkey and grabbed everybody’s attention. Later, speaking to the media, Bangi lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for remaining indifferent to the plight of the people of Andhra Pradesh.

The former Mayor said that the NDA government headed by Narendra Modi should accord SCS to the state without fail or else, face a washout in the next general elections in 2019. “We are just asking only for implementation of the bifurcation promises made to the AP in 2014. He warned the Prime Minister that the people of the State would teach him a bitter lesson if he fails to keep up his promises.

“With our support, you have won only five or six seats and now there was no chance of winning at least one seat in the state. We will sweep entire Andhra Pradesh and TDP will win all 175 seats, said Bangi Ananthaiah, exuding confidence.
