No AP State Formation Day Again
Amaravati: The Andhra Pradesh is missing its State Formation Day for the third consecutive year. Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu plans to have ‘Nava Nirmana Deeksha’ this time too where he speaks about the unjust bifurcation and makes people to take pledge to work for the development of the State.
The AP has been holding November 1 as the State Formation Day since 1956. In fact, every State in the country has its own Formation Day. But, after 2014 bifurcation Chandrababu Naidu had decided to stop this event. Though there were requests from the Opposition, including the Left to have the AP Formation Day on November 1, the day when AP and Telangana were formed into one in 1956 or opt for October 1, when Andhra State was formed after separation from Madras Presidency in 1953, Chandrababu Naidu did not take the advice. The YSR Congress had declared that it would consider holding the State Formation Day when the party comes to power.
However, Chandrababu Naidu, like in the past two years, had given a plan to block the busy Benz Circle in Vijayawada for the ‘Nava Nirmana Deeksha’ to be held on June 2. The event would continue till June 8, the day he took oath as Chief Minister in 2014. This year, he had decided to have an event on June 8 at Kakinada where he is scheduled to make people to take pledge to work for the development of the State after bifurcation.
