Leaders of all parties express anger over allocations of funds to AP

Chandrababu Naidu

He added that in order to discuss the further course of action, the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu will hold a meeting of party leaders in Amaravati on Sunday. TDP party alliance with BJP had highly disappointed at the ignorance of the Central government. Addressing media, the minister said, "People and the party are disappointed with the Union Budget presented today". The State's party TDP also believed that centre is not willing to give adequate funds for its new capital Amravati. "Many state issues like the Polavaram project funding and funds for capital Amaravati were not addressed in the budget", Chowdhary, the Minister of State for Science and Technology, was quoted by NDTV. Incidentally, even the last Budget had seen Mr Naidu calling similar meeting with party MPs but the party had chose to continue to persuade the Centre to fulfill the promises made during bifurcation.

Srikakulam MP K Rammohan Naidu said it was unfortunate that despite repeated representations given by Naidu to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and several Central ministers seeking help for Andhra Pradesh, the Centre had given a "step-motherly" treatment to the state.

The leader of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) that allies with the ruling BJP to form the government in the state said that the state has not seen any progress in past 4 years.

However, the state government is in financial straits and requires regular intervention from the Centre to tide over its crisis nearly every month and hence is hardly in a position to bargain. He called an emergency meeting of party leaders on Sunday.

He had said the TDP had been waiting for four years for the BJP to help the state come out of the hard situation created by its division. "But if they do not want us, I will say "namaste" and walk away", he had said.

While threatening to resign, he added, "If we also quit from Parliament, there is no one to question the injustice to Andhra, as TDP being an ally of BJP, is silent".
