  • Chandrababu Naidu has four options if he parts ways with the BJP. Which way will he

Union minister of State for Home Hansraj Gangaram Ahir said the Central and Andhra Pradesh governments have been working together to implement the provisions made in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014 which includes establishment of several institutions and launch of certain projects, as mentioned in Schedule 12 of the Act.

The facilities, needed to make Visakhapatnam into an aqua hub, are in the process of being developed by the Marine Products Exports Development Authority (MPEDA) and the Andhra Pradesh State Government.

When the House met at 11 am, Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu appealed to members to allow the proceedings, but adjourned the proceedings the moment members from parties of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, TMC and Congress were on their feet. All this is not correct.

"Besides granting special category status as promised by the former Prime Minister in Parliament during passage of AP Reorganisation Act, the Centre has to provide financial assistance to the construction of capital city Amaravati, grant separate railway zone, establish Dugarajapatnam port, steel factory at Kadapa and petro-chemical complex and resolve many other demands, including special package for the backward districts on the lines of Bundelkhand", the resolution said. We will continue to be a part of the NDA, but not take up any ministerial positions. "So I am requesting Andhra should be immediately granted special category status", the chief minister said.

Arun Jaitley's remarks; sentiments can not increase the quantum of funds, during a press meet raised political heat between TDP and BJP both at the Centre and the State. "The centre should give hand holding to the state until the state recovers and grows at par with the other southern Indian states", Naidu continued.

'Arun Jaitley said the other day that, sentiments can not increase the quantum of funds. "Sentiment does not decide quantum of funds, it is the Constitutional award of the Finance Commission which decides on the quantum of funds that the States get". Unrelenting members from TDP stormed the Well carrying placards demanding special status for Andhra Pradesh while the AIADMK demanded setting up of Cauvery water management board.

Referring to BJP leaders' statements that funds for various development works and schemes were coming from the Centre, the Chief Minister said all that was people's money. But the TDP has not completely shut the door on a possible rapprochement and still remains a member of the NDA.
