With the National Democratic Alliance rejecting outright the demand for special category status to Andhra Pradesh and ignoring the demands for industrial tax incentives to the state, Telugu Desam Party president and chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu is planning to kick up the slogan of "self-respect of Telugus" to cash in on in the next assembly elections.

Deputy Chairman PJ Kurien, who was in the Chair, tried to take up a calling attention motion on strategic storage of crude oil and petroleum products in the country and asked Chunibhai Kanjibhai Gohel of BJP to initiate the discussion.
