Naidu takes on combative posture against Centre

Naidu takes on combative posture against Centre

"We went for an alliance with BJP to ensure justice to our state. Even in the latest budget, which is the last full-fledged budget of the NDA government, justice was not done to Andhra Pradesh", he said. "I am ready to make any sacrifice to ensure justice for the people here", CM Naidu was quoted as saying by ANI.

Addressing a budget preparatory conference here this afternoon, Naidu said that Andhra Pradesh had not got what was due from the Centre as per the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014.

Naidu had been demanding special package and more allocation of funds for the state, while the BJP is maintaining that it has been making all necessary allocations for the state. A Union finance ministry official had also confirmed that discussions were underway on new demands made by Andhra Pradesh. The state has been pressuring the Centre for additional funds to the state.

"Maybe they want to gain political mileage by telling the people that the BJP had done nothing for the state", he said.

"Our party leaders would protest at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on March 5, when the Budget Session resumes and will fight for the SCS inside and outside the Parliament", he added.

On the other hand, the BJP said that the claim that the Centre was not helping Andhra Pradesh was "deliberate distortion of facts" and asserted that the Narendra Modi government had gone beyond its means to help the state after its bifurcation.

"We have fulfilled all the promises made in the Act, except three - Dugarajapatnam port, Vizag railway zone and Kadapa steel plant". This is the first time that the chief minister has made such a demand in public since forging a pre poll alliance with the BJP in 2014.

"Like the Centre, the states too have their own autonomy and sovereignty". "The people of Andhra Pradesh or the person (Naidu himself) who ruled the State for nine years and was opposition leader for 10 years was never consulted before dividing the state", said Naidu.

In fact, Lok Satta founder Dr Jayaprakash Narayana also expressed the similar view that the Centre can not seek accounts for funds it provided to the state. "In my opinion, the Centre has no right to ask the state to show accounts for the funds released by the Centre for various schemes", he said.
