Superstar turned politician Pawan Kalyan tweeted on special status issue to Andhra Pradesh yesterday. He said that exactly two years back Congress divided the state in a haphazard manner by kicking the MP’s and throwing MP’s outside the parliament. The betrayal done to Seemandhra people by then congress government is not forgotten. He said that BJP should stand on its words by giving special status to Andhra and not follow the footsteps of BJP.
Earlier today Union Minister of state for Home affairs said that AP does not need special status. He also said that NDA government has fulfilled all other promises mentioned in the AP reorganization act. The NDA government fulfiled some of the promises such as establishing IIT in Tirupati, IIM in Ahmedabad,NIT in Tadepalligudem,Allocation of funds to capital region and 24 * 7 electricity to Andhra Pradesh. But the funds to poolavaram project and establishment of metro projects in vizag and vijayawada are not allocated. These are some of the promises not fulfilled by NDA government.
He also said that MP’s of Andhra Pradesh of both ruling and opposition party should fight together for special status before people gets agitated. Let us hope that NDA government fulfills all the promises mentioned in the AP reorganization act and make Andhra Pradesh a developed state.
