Telugu Desam Party MP and former actor Naramalli Sivaprasad who is known to make appearances donning costumes of famous characters on Thursday turned up as Adolf Hitler – the German dictator -- in Parliament. Sivaprasad was protesting to demand special category status for Andhra Pradesh.

This is one of the few dramatic stunts pulled by the actor-turned-politician. Three days back, Sivaprasad had made an appearance as Lord Ram in Parliament. He has also donned the Sathya Sai and Narad Muni avatar in the past to protest over the same issue.

The TDP led by chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu in Andhra Pradesh has been demanding a special status for the state from a long time.

In March this year, Naidu’s party had pulled out of the alliance with the NDA after it had accused the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of not living up to the promise of granting special category status to Andhra Pradesh.

In a letter addressed to Amit Shah, Naidu had mentioned the reasons behind the drastic step by his party.

The TDP was the first party to leave the coalition since NDA came to power at the Centre in 2014.
