On the opening ceremony of Jairaj Ispat Ltd steel factory in Orvakallu, AP CM Chandrababu Naidu quoted during his speech that their state would have been as developed as Gujarat if the Central Government had considered the special status and implemented their promises during the 2014 elections.
He has also indirectly aimed at Modi stating, “Our honorable Prime Minister might have been upset with my protest for his resignation during the Godhra Riots. Modi would have reconsidered our issues if there was a need of the state government but the majority his government possess in Lok Sabha has turned out to be a drawback for AP.”
Chandrababu Naidu further stated that he along with his party would fight any day for the cause of special status without a back step. The AP CM has also slammed the opposition parties YSRCP and BJP saying that they would be nowhere around after the 2019 elections.
