Hyderabad: While attaching the Central government for not giving a Special Status to Andhra Pradesh, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu played extracts from PM Narendra Modi’s speeches before and post winning elections on the screen in the state Assembly.
“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,” PM Modi said while laying the foundation stone of new capital Amaravati, after getting elected.
Naidu criticised the Centre for undemocratically adjourning the House and not allowing no-confidence motion. “We want discussion, and government to inform people how Bill was passed, what promises were made, what all has been fulfilled and what all not delivered. The Government has to tell truth to people. But they are behaving irresponsibly, they come for 5 minutes and leave,” Naidu said.
“I knew BJP would accuse me, so I carefully prepared all records. This is only their tactics to divert from the real issue. In future also BJP government will try to blame us for some reason or other and not release funds to the state. BJP is cheating the state for the temporary political benefit, but for the country as a whole this is not a right thing,” Naidu added.
