  • Telugu Desam party Chief N Chandrababu Naidu will be arriving in Delhi tonight

Blaming the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for failing to deliver on the demand for special category status, Andhra Pradesh chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu said the Union government is looking for alliance partners that will remain under its control but will not fight for the rights of the people of the state.

"There is no pressure with respect to YSR Congress Party".

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has sought the appointment of a joint parliamentary committee to assess the promises made to the residual State of Andhra Pradesh at the time of division and its actual implementation.

The chief minister also had discussions with Hema Malini, Manohar Joshi and Jayant Sinha of the BJP and shared images of his meetings on his Twitter profile. "If he allies with the Congress then Naidu will lose whatever credibility he has left", Rao said.

Reiterating the Centre's commitment towards the development of Andhra Pradesh, Javadekar ridiculed Naidu's politics.

The BJP National President in his letter last month said the TDP quitting the NDA was "unfortunate" and refuted charges of his party being insensitive to Andhra's aspirations. TDP sources told TOI that during his two-day visit to the national capital, Naidu will reach out to the Congress, Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and Trinamool Congress and anyone else willing to support him on the issue of the Centre not granting Special Category Status (SCS) for AP. "I ask the present government why can't we have a review?"

Naidu said farmers had handed over 33,000 acres of land to construct Amaravati.

At the press conference, Naidu played old videos of Modi's campaign during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls in which the prime minister is seen guaranteeing the special status. "Andhra Pradesh is fighting with the Centre and I am Centre's attitude", he said, adding that the bifurcation of the state has brought down Andhra's per capita income to 10.96 %, the lowest compared to other southern states. With all four years in NDA, I have done my best. As both remained tight-lipped about what they discussed, speculation was rife in BJP circles. "The Congress is exclusively responsible for the plight of Andhra Pradesh".

Narrating incidents that led to TDPs exit from NDA and Modi govt, Naidu told national media that BJP had played a dirty game of playing with YSRC opposition, though it was sailing with TDP all along.
