YS Sharmila said that the TDP government broke Jagan?s fast as they are scared that special status issue may intensify further at the time of Prime Minister Narendra Modi?s visit to foundation stone laying ceremony for Amaravati. Sharmila said that Jagan took up fast for special status as Chief Minister Chandrababu failed to get the same even after TDP and BJP promising during elections. She said Jagan would continue protest till AP gets special status.
