Telugu Desam twisted Modi's 2014 election speech, says BJP

02 May 2018

Reeling out promises made by the BJP and Modi to the state, he tore into them, detailing meagre Central funds given to the state under different heads and accused the Centre of lying that special status was not granted to the state on the advice of the 14th Finance Commission.

Naidu further said that his government fulfilled more than 95 percent of the promises made to the public and Andhra Pradesh remained on the top in the agricultural sector post the bifurcation.

A public meeting will be held at Tarakarama Stadium here on Monday on Special Category Status (SCS) issue.

"Polavaram project is a boon for people of the State given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and this project work was proceeding fast after villages affected with this project were merged in AP", Haribabu said. "Our fight will continue against them until justice gets delivered and there is no compromise on that", Naidu said. Naidu alleged that the Centre is humiliating people of AP by advising us to build an Administrative Building with the allotted Rs 1500 Crore.

"I am fighting against Narendra Modi and the centre", Naidu declared and called upon the Telugu voters in Karnataka not to vote for the BJP in the ongoing elections.

Stating that 2.5 crore people are working in unorganised sector in the State, the Chief Minister directed the officials to correct disparities in minimum wages and implement minimum wages to all within three months.

Taking his fight against the BJP beyond the state, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, for the first time, has exhorted Telugus in poll-bound Karnataka to teach a lesson to the saffron party and stressed that it was their responsibility to do so.

The TDP pulled out of the BJP-led alliance over its refusal to accord Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh and fulfil other commitments made at the time of state's division in 2014. BJP can't even win one sarpanch seat. "We are also part of this country, we are also paying taxes", said Naidu. "It is shameless that the YSRC is holding a parallel meet against us in Vizag", he said.

Simultaneously the main opposition YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) also organized a "Vanchena Vyatereka Deeksha" (Betrayal Day) for the "injustice" done to Andhra Pradesh and to demand SCS. Though four years lapsed Narendra Modi has done nothing to the State.
