Yet another valuable life has been lost due to the betrayal over the special status promise to Andhra Pradesh. A class 9 student named Mahendra (14) from Jaladurgam village in Kurnool hanged himself to death, demanding special status for Andhra Pradesh.
Mahendra was a student at the local government high school. A suicide letter was recovered from his pocket in which he wrote that his family is debt-ridden and that his brother would have gotten a job had AP was accorded special status. He went on to write that even he may not get any job in future if AP doesn’t get special status.
Mahendra further wrote that he is sacrificing his life for AP just how many people had sacrificed their lives for separate Telangana. Mahendra’s brother is currently pursuing his graduation. The police are probing the matter after receiving a complaint from Mahendra’s father.
