New Delhi: A man climbed a tower near the Metro Bhawan in the national capital demanding special status for Andhra Pradesh on Friday, police said.

The man was seen holding a banner that read, "AP need special status (sic)".

 

The man has been sitting there for one-and-a-half hours, Deputy Commissioner of Police (New Delhi) Madhur Verma said, adding that efforts were being made to bring him down.

A fire tender has also been rushed to the spot.

Last week, the TDP moved a no-confidence motion against the government in the Lok Sabha over the issue. However, the move was defeated.
