During his visit to Bihar, KCR strongly said that special status should be given to that state. Seeing the way he said, many people remembered the way TRS had followed in the past in the matter of special status to AP. When Telugu Desam was in power..when relations with that party were not good, he made negative comments that if AP was given status, what would be our situation. People like K Kesha Rao opposed it in Parliament.
When Jagan Mohan Reddy established close relations with the TRS party, then Telangana announced its support for special status. KCR had earlier announced that if YCP and TRS have 43 MPs in two states, they will bring status. They will also fight for special status for AP. But after the election he became silent. But leaders like Harish Rao against the status of AP have made several statements to provoke the people.
Now KCR is using the same formula in Bihar too. Special status has long been a political issue in Bihar. Nitish Kumar himself has often lashed out at the then ally BJP. Then became silent. Whenever there is a mention of special status in the country. It is said that KCR is using special status in Bihar as well as in AP.
