Kadapa: BJP state president Kanna Lakshminarayana said though his party failed to provide Special Category Status (SCS) to Andhra Pradesh due to some legal reasons, it has done more than that by allocating adequate funds under Special Package Procedure (SPP) for state development.
Kanna was in Kadapa to participate in various party related programmes and addressed the public gathering here on Saturday. While defending his party step over filing affidavit in Supreme Court, he said there is no wrong in it as the NDA government fulfilled all the assurances mentioned in the AP Reorganising Act.
Lakshminarayana has described the decision of AP government to launch legal battle against the Central is meaningless. Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is hatching a conspiracy to divert the attention of people of state to cover his failure in the administration, he alleged and pointed out that his party was committed to fulfil the promises mentioned in the AP Reorganisation Act, but there was no timebound commitment. The Central government sanctioned a number of educational institutional to the state, he said.
Asserting his government’s commitment over establishment of steel plant in Kadapa district. He said discussions are also going on over setting up Visakha Railway Zone. While questioning Chief Minister’s attitude in criticising NDA government, party secretary Kandula Rajamohan Reddy said if Chief Minister is really committed for the development of the state why he had accepted the offer of special package instead raising SCS for these years. On this occasion party activists organised a rally in the city. Party district president Srinatha Reddy, state secretary S Suresh Reddy, B.Sasibushan Reddy, N Saradamma and others were present.
