The state has been facing major crises as a sum of Rs 5,764 crore is yet to be released as GST to the state. Apart from that, the IGST and funds for the backward area development have also been pending.

K Kesha Rao claims that the NDA government has not been positively responding to the state on most of the issues.

“We have written hundreds of letters from the state about many issues, many projects but their response is not good on almost all projects, and basic issues,” K Kesha Rao said.

State Finance Minister T Harish Rao unhappy with the centre’s approach with regards to the compensation of funds said, “The state government has decided to take up the issue in Parliament and also initiate legal recourse if the centre refuses to take full responsibility to uphold the GST Act that was passed in the Parliament.”
