PM Modi never promised special status, TDP twisted his words: Andhra BJP

Interestingly, the venue and date of meeting are the same as the venue and date in 2014 general election campaign, when the then prime ministerial candidate of NDA Narendera Modi had promised the Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh if the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came to power and he became the prime minister.

The inability of TDP's and the centre's deliverance on their promise of evoking Special Category Status for the state of A.P has caused a major political ruckus across the state.

"He promised to build a capital better than Delhi but he gave only Rs. 1500 crores to Amaravati while Rs. 2500 crores is given to build a statue (Sardar Patel statue in Gujarat)", Naidu added. The TDP has been fighting against the Centre for the rights of people of Andhra, demanding it to fulfil assurances made in Rajya Sabha including SCS and provisions of Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act.

TDP sources said the Chief Minister in his address will lambast Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his political conspiracy on the SCS and he will make a scathing attack on BJP simultaneously. "Our fight will continue against them until justice gets delivered and there is no compromise on that", Naidu said, while launching first election public meeting.


"The Chief Minister also said that Narendra Modi appealed to voters whether they want "Swarna Andhra" or "Scam Andhra" and appealed to people to vote for him if they want "Swarna Andhra" but, today he is colluding with a tainted party".

Referring to Telugu Desam Party's (TDP) exit from the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) coalition at the Centre, Naidu said, "I waited for four years..."

Meanwhile, the YSR Congress - the main opposition party in the state - observed a daylong hunger strike under the Vanchana Vyatireka Deeksha (protest against betrayal) banner at Visakhapatnam on Monday to highlight how the "BJP and TDP had joined hands" to deny special category status to the state.

Stating that 2.5 crore people are working in unorganised sector in the State, the Chief Minister directed the officials to correct disparities in minimum wages and implement minimum wages to all within three months. It can't even win 10 sarpanch seats. "Currency shortage will have a negative impact on the growth rate and society, ' Naidu said, while addressing a State-level Bankers" Committee (SLBC) meeting at the Grievance Hall at his residence in Undavalli. Though four years lapsed Narendra Modi has done nothing to the State.
