Naidu questions Modi over unfulfilled promises

Andhra CM Naidu blames Centre for slow growth of AP

Why Naidu worried about YCP-BJP tie-up, asks Haribabu

While unmasking the betrayal of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, exactly from the same venue at the abode of Lord Balaji in Tirupati, on the same date, Telugu Desam Party (TDP) held a large public meeting "Nammaka Droham-Kutra Rajakeeyalapai Dharma Porata Bahiranga Sabha" (Fight against Betrayal and Collusion Politics - Public Meeting) on Monday to remind Narendra Modi of his promises. They (BJP) want to replicate the same here in AP.

Amid a furore over a reported cash crunch, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu said currency shortage will have a negative impact on the growth rate and society.

After the State's bifurcation, construction of capital and Polavaram projects became crucial for the government. "Instead of hand-holding the nascent State, the Centre has let us down", he charged.

He accused the BJP-led NDA regime of trying to paint the TDP black, in spite of reneging on its promise of providing the SCS to the State, which he said had found a place in the party's manifesto and also announced by prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi ahead of the polls.

Questioning if it is wrong to demand Narendra Modi to fulfill promises he made, Naidu said, "He promised to build a capital better than Delhi, but he gave only Rs 1500 crores to Amaravati while Rs 2500 crores are given to build a statue (Sardar Patel statue in Gujarat)". "But now, he is colluding with a tainted party to attack us", he said. "The panel members and chairman have clarified that they had never made any such recommendation", he pointed out and alleged that the BJP's intention was to align with the corrupt (YSR Congress) in the belief that the latter could be used as a puppet.

The TDP organised a grand public meeting in Tirupati to protest against the Centre's refusal to grant special category status to Andhra Pradesh.

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.

Naidu also noted the government is focusing on food processing and reducing the cost of agriculture, in the coming days, and underlined the state government's efforts to strike a balance between development and welfare in the state. "Do you have any shame?" he asked the Opposition party.
