In a press conference that lasted a little less than an hour, Naidu virtually accused the Modi government of insulting him and betraying the people of Andhra Pradesh.

However, according to 14th Finance Commission, there is no special category status now to be given but the Centre is committed to offering the monetary equivalent to this status to the state.

The BJP high command has instructed its ministers in the AP cabinet to get ready for tendering their resignations to the Governor if Chandrababu Naidu announced parting away of alliance with BJP.

Naidu also said to have spoken to his party's senior leaders, MPs, state Ministers and took the decision.

Parliament failed to transact any business for the second day running on Tuesday, with different opposition parties disrupting proceedings over the bank scam, a special package for Andhra Pradesh and constitution of the Cauvery Water Management Board.




After fulfilling the demand of special status, it now remains to seen if the dispute will settle down or not.

Asked about the threat of TDP to pull out of the NDA if more funds are not allocated, he said "political issue can not increase the quantum of money because the Centre has no free floating funds".

"What is the implication of special status?". Stressing that he is personally sympathetic to Andhra Pradesh, which has suffered with the creation of Telangana, Jaitley, however, pointed out that the special category status does not exist any longer after the recommendations of the Fourteenth Finance Commission were accepted.

At the time of the 2014 general elections, the BJP had promised to award special status to Andhra Pradesh in light of the state's financial troubles.

Accordingly, in the component of centrally sponsored schemes, an amount of Rs 16447 crores was mutually agreed upon between the central and state governments. They said that Jaitley said nothing new; he simply repeated his previous statements which clearly indicated that the Centre was in no mood to help Andhra Pradesh. The Centre is agreeable to even that provided a mechanism is worked out, he told reporters at his office here. So one of the promises was, AP should be given special category status. We are left with no option but to leave the alliance.
