Hyderabad: The AP Congress Committee on Friday decided to seek AICC president Sonia Gandhi’s active participation in the fight for special status to Andhra Pradesh at field level. Sonia is likely to tour Andhra Pradesh and attend public meetings in Vijayawada, Visakhaptnam and Tirupati soon.

APCC president N Raghuveera Reddy held party’s coordination committee meeting attended by senior leaders K Chiranjeevi, M M Pallam Raju, Botcha Satyanarayana and others at the party head office Indira Bhavan here on Friday.
