Andhra Pradesh special status row: N Chandrababu Naidu meets Arvind Kejriwal

Naidu said that the decision to part ways with the NDA was taken after several rounds of discussions and that it was taken after he was convinced that the BJP was responsible for the injustice towards the people of the state.

After Trinamul Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, it was the turn of Telugu Desam Party chief and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu to hit the capital trail on Tuesday to push for Opposition unity against the BJP. They have given special status to 11 states in spite of the 14th Finance Commission. The motion is supported by 80-odd MPs, Opposition has claimed, but has not been taken up by Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, citing repeated disruptions and sloganeering. They also discussed the issue of special category status. "I ask the present government why can't we have a review?"

Naidu also sought the support of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, the ruling party in Tamil Nadu, for the no-confidence motion it has moved against the Narendra Modi government in Parliament. "I wanted to communicate to the nation about what they promised and what they have done, how they are attacking a state", Naidu said.

"Had they given us special status within the first year, I would have saved Rs 3,000-5,000 crore". On Wednesday, he met Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

On a question if the Union government was specifically acting against southern states, Naidu said progressive states should be encouraged and not discouraged.

"In my visit to Delhi I wanted to place before nation what is central government doing & how was the bifurcation done".

"People of Andhra Pradesh continue to feel betrayed". Despite my 29 visits to Delhi during the last four years, nothing has happened, except minor things. The PMO (Prime Minister's Office) has to answer. He also said that the people of Andhra were "wounded", had suffered and that it was the responsibility of all parties who had passed the Bifurcation Act to fulfil their promises to Andhra Pradesh.

Meanwhile, national media has asked Chandrababu about joining the "National Front", to which Naidu made it clear that his priority is to gather support from all major political parties for according Special Category Status to AP. Javadekar dismissed Naidu's charge as a political stand, and said he would not have been in today's position had he not entered into an alliance with the BJP in 2014.
