New Delhi : Amidst uproar by the opposition in the Lok Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke on the Motion of Thanks to the President's address.
PM blames Congress for Andhra Pradesh's problems
With Telugu Desam Party (TDP) threatening to leave the NDA fold, PM Modi blamed the Congress party for what the TDP says injustice meted out to Andhra Pradesh.
He added that whenever one speaks about carving out new states, they remember the manner in which former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee created Uttarakhand, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh.
This is the first time Prime Minister Modi has spoken, albeit indirectly, on the ongoing tussle with the TDP, where the Andhra Pradesh's political party is alleging that the government has done injustice in allocating funds to the southern state in the Budget 2018-19.
