This has reference to the news item: AP CM Naidu 'U-turn' Babu, says Modi (THI dated 30.03.2019). In fact it is the PM who should be called the "U-turn PM". It is anybody's knowledge that the PM, during his hectic election campaign in 2014 has promised Special Status to AP, if BJP comes to power.
But, unfortunately, after coming to power, he had forgotten his promise and took a complete "U-turn" by denying the promised Special Status to AP.
Again at the time of AP division bill discussion in Rajya Sabha, the BJP leaders Venkaiah Naidu and Jaitley had strongly demanded for 10 years Special Status to AP, when the then PM Manmohan Singh has declared 5 years Special Status to the State.
Subsequently after coming to power, they too have conveniently forgotten their demand and took a complete "U-turn" in not granting Special Category Status to AP, forget about 5 years or 10 years.
The PM should clarify now as to who is taking "U-turn"? Even on Special Package offer also the BJP took a complete U-turn. On consistent demand from AP, the Finance Minister Jaitley has announced a Special Package to AP in place of Special Status. Even that package was also not implemented. The PM should clarify as to who is taking "U-turn" now.
The PM's remarks that April 11 should see 'son set', are most unsavoury and highly objectionable for all Telugu speaking people, as such personal remarks are seen as sending ominous signs against the individual whosoever is targeted.
Does the PM really know the meaning of the word son-set? It is very unfortunate to see such a low-level words are coming out of the mouth of a PM.
