Intensifying their demand for a Special Category Status for the state, the Andhra Pradesh Pratyeka Hoda Saadhana Samiti on Monday observed a day-long statewide bandh or strike to urge the Centre to take the necessary step.

While members of Left parties reportedly blocked the National Highway 16 which connects Kolkata and Chennai, ANI shared visuals where members of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) could be seen staging rasta roko.

Reacting to the shutdown call, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said bandhs were not welcome as they hamper development.

Protests by MPs from Andhra Pradesh over the matter caused a near washout of the Budget Session of Parliament in March and April, with the state's ruling Telugu Desam Party and Opposition YSR Congress Party stalling proceedings for 22 straight days.

Motorcycle set ablaze near RTC bus stand during statewide bandh called in Andhra Pradesh. The ruling Telugu Desam Party does not support the strike. Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu had accused Prime Minister led Narendra Modi government of following an oppressive policy instead of attempting to resolve the issue of granting special category status to the state.

Rambabu also stated that Naidu had no right to protest against a shutdown as a bandh was a form of democratic protest.

"Why this intimidation? As long as they are peaceful, we will continue all forms of democratic protests", Rambabu said.

He appealed to the people of Andhra Pradesh to give the TDP all 25 MP seats to play a crucial role at the Centre. The Chief Minister had met non-BJP parties to explain the "injustice" done to Andhra Pradesh post-bifurcation and how the NDA government "failed" to honour the promises made in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014.
