Back when the fight for special category status for Andhra Pradesh was intense, hundreds of cases were filed against the protestors in the state.
However, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has ordered the concerned officials to cancel all these police cases that were filed on the common public.
Incidentally, Jagan himself was involved in 22 such cases in the past five years.
8 of them were filed when Jagan fought for the farmers who lost their lands in the capital region. 4 cases were lodged when he fought for the special category status. YCP leaders claim that the TDP government filed these cases for their political gains.
