Naidu hopes Centre will keep promises
- Slams critics on package
Visakhapatnam: AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has hoped that the Centre would fulfill its promise of giving funds under special packages on par with Special Status.
Addressing a Jana Chaitanya Yatra meeting at Chodavaram in Visakhapatnam district on Thursday, he said the Centre has given assurance that it would provide more funds under the package than what the state could get under the Special Status category. Refuting allegations that the state would not get more funds under special status, the chief minister said some mischief mongers were willfully spreading false information. It may be mentioned here that YSRCP president YS Jaganmohan Reddy and Tollywood actor and Jana Sena founder Pawan Kalyan raised questions about the state government agreeing to special package.
Blaming the ten-year Congress rule for the present problems, Naidu said he was relentlessly working for development of AP and his aim was to eradicate poverty. “Though we have a chance to live in Hyderabad for ten years, we decided to shift government machinery to Amaravati for the sake of people, he added.
