Taking to the popular social media platform Twitter, YS Jagan sent out a tweet urging PM Modi to fulfill the promise made on the floor of the parliament. The tweet reads:

YS Jagan has been highlighting the issue of SCS to AP right from the time of bifurcation of the state. The YSRCP chief has also been creating awareness on the SCS issue at every public meeting and rally during the course of his mass contact initiative, Praja Sankalpa Yatra which reached its 135th day today.
