PM went back on promise on special category status: AP CM

Andhra CM Naidu blames Centre for slow growth of AP

Telugu Desam Party (TDP) supremo and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu once again attacked the centre and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for failing to give Andhra Pradesh special category status (SCS).

Claiming that the TDP had joined NDA for the state's interests, Naidu said his party always fought to get what was promised at the time of the state's bifurcation in 2014.

Naidu said the special category status was a legitimate right of Andhra Pradesh, considering how the state was divided on the basis of this very promise made by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Taking up the SCS issue as its main agenda by TDP, it want to win the hearts of the people ahead of general elections in 2019. "BJP is colluding with YS Jaganmohan Reddy, who goes to CBI court every Friday in connection with corruption cases", said Nara Lokesh. Why AP has been been not funded by centre to develop a capital city?, questioned Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu talking to a large gathering at the "Dharma Porata Sabha" held in Tirupati on Monday (April 30, 2018).

Mr. Naidu accused the Centre of trying to cosy up to the "tainted" YSR Congress Party. All of the attendees were observing a 12 hour long fast, the protest stage by YSRCP was attended by their MPs MLAs and MLCs.

Benjamin Netanyahu accuses Iran of hiding nuclear weapons activity
In all, Netanyahu said Israel has obtained "exact copies" of some 55,000 files from the purported Iranian archive. And the files also show that Iran's intent was to revive the nuclear weapons program at a later date, he said.

"Gujarat has Ahmedabad, Telangana has Hyderabad and Karnataka has Bengaluru as capital cities". "BJP felt that since TDP has a clean image it would not dance to their tunes, whereas corrupt parties will act as per their wish", he said.

He also stressed the need for academic integration of industries and ITIs to improve the skills of students and asked industries to adopt nearby ITIs and modernise them to meet the present day needs of the industry sector. "The reason why I have given a call is because, in Karnataka elections too, it is the responsibility of Telugus, wherever they are, to defeat decisively those who are practising this kind of politics".

He made a specific mention of Kathua incident, in which a minor girl was allegedly raped by Hindu funamentalists. "Instead of concentrating on conspiring against us, BJP government should concentrate on development". There will be no compromise on achieving our rights.

Stating that 2.5 crore people are working in unorganised sector in the State, the Chief Minister directed the officials to correct disparities in minimum wages and implement minimum wages to all within three months.
