Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu again lashed out at the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre for not according Special Category Status for the State. Refuting Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement in the loksabha that he had taken a ‘U-turn’ on the Special Category Status issue, Naidu maintained that he had only taken the “right turn.”
“Neither did I take a U-turn nor did I fall into the YSRCP trap. It was the BJP that took the U-turn after promising SCS to AP for 10 years,” Naidu said at a public meeting in Ongole town on Saturday evening.
“We have to whole-heartedly thank the Congress party for unconditionally supporting our no-confidence motion even though we never requested it,” Naidu told the gathering.
The CM claimed that he could enlist the support of all political parties in the country in the fight for AP’s rights. “Samajwadi Party, Trinamool Congress, JD (U), AIADMK, BJD, RJD, DMK, JD (S), CPI, CPI-M, Shiv Sena, NCP, Akali Dal, Kerala Congress, PDP and even TRS have unconditionally supported us. TDP is the only party in the entire country that has left the Narendra Modi government totally shaken,” the TDP president said.
