 Amaravati: In an unprecedented move, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu played video clips of Prime Minister’s speeches before and after winning elections on the big screen especially put up inside the State Assembly, before attacking him and the centre for not granting Special Status.

In one section, Modi in an election campaign in the State, said, “I want to assure you if send me to Delhi, then the promise of Special Status, will be fulfilled also and extended also.”

“Standing here in Amaravati, I want to assure the people of Andhra Pradesh that all the promises mentioned in the Reorganisation Act will be fulfilled by the government of India,” he said while laying the foundation stone of new capital Amaravati, after coming to power.

Demanding direct answers from the Prime Minister, Naidu said, “We have submitted all the utilization certificates for central funds. But the BJP leaders are spreading open lies that no UC is submitted. As a chief minister of the state, I am asking this question to the prime minister. Are you aware of all this? I demand answers from you.”

While informing the House about resolutions passed at the all-party meet, Naidu also hit out at YSR Congress and Jana Sena for not attending the all-party meeting.

“Only 3 parties did not participate, YSRCP, Jana Sena and BJP. All these three parties, have political motives and talking against the state government, instead of fighting against the Centre collectively for the rights of the state,” Naidu said.

A resolution was passed in the all-party meeting of various political parties and organisation fighting for Special Status that all promises made in AP reorganization act must be fulfilled. Calling for a united fight, Naidu assured that another all-party meeting will take place so that more people can be roped in for a collective fight for Special Status.

Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu continues to attack the Narendra Modi government blaming it for failure to fulfil promises made to Andhra Pradesh post-bifurcation.

“You are playing with people’s sentiments.It may give you temporary political benefits but will cause permanent damage to the nation. We may differ in politics, but if it causes damage to the nation, it is not good,” Naidu said.

Chandrababu questioned if it was co-operative federalism or Team India spirit to not honour promises made to a state.

The Prime Minister owed an explanation to five crore people of Andhra Pradesh on this, he said, adding the centre “cannot discriminate between states.”

Lashing out at BJP president Amit Shah once again over the nine-page letter he wrote to him last week, the TDP chief remarked that other states might be in the habit of diverting Central funds, but not Andhra Pradesh.

“We will account for every Rupee (granted by the Centre) and demand and secure our funds. Development, welfare and good governance will not stop in AP,” he asserted.

Naidu also came down on BJP national spokesman GVL Narasimha Rao for terming the utilization certificates submitted by the state for the Central grants, as ‘fake’.
