Chandrababu Naidu will undertake a day-long fast in Delhi on Monday, seeking special category status for the state and fulfilment of other commitments made by the Centre at the time of state's bifurcation.

He accused opposition political parties, especially the Congress, of fuelling protest against the bill through a misinformation campaign.

Naidu is scheduled to pay tributes to Mahatma Gandhi at Raj Ghat and also to the Ambedkar Statue at the Andhra Pradesh Bhavan before sitting on the hunger strike. "They have come to our country and embraced the idea and ethos of Mother India", he said.

A large number of protesters from Andhra Pradesh has already reached the national capital. The two trains will leave from Srikakulam and Anantapur districts.

"The pain of the indigenous people will be seen across Assam tomorrow...effigies of the prime minister will be burnt in every corner of the state", said AASU president Dipanka Nath.

Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu said Modi, who urged people to register their protest, himself wore a black shirt.

The All Assam Students' Union (AASU) took out a protest rally in front of their head office, Swahid Nyas Bhawan in the Uzan Bazaar area and burnt the effigy of Narendra Modi in addition to waving black flags as PM Modi arrived in Changsari from Itanagar on Saturday, February 9.

Modi alleged that Naidu joined the competition by "Maha Milawat" in abusing him.

Hours later, the latter launched a counter-offensive at a public meeting in Vijayawada.

Naidu also called demonetisation a "mad Tughlaq act".

Launching a scathing attack on Andhra Pradesh chief minister, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that Chandrababu Naidu was definitely his senior, especially because he excelled in "backing his father-in-law, which I can not do".
