Andhra Pradesh Congress announced the dates for the filing of cheating cases against Prime Minister Modi, chief minister Chandrababu Naidu and union urban development minister M Venkaiah Naidu. PCC President N Raghuvira Reddy said on September 7, 8 and 9 the cases would be booked in all 1200 police station across the Andhra Pradesh.
He says chief minister Naidu not only failed miserably in bargaining for the special category status to the Andhra Pradesh which was the commitment of union government.
“For union government the party in power is immaterial. Party can come and go. But the administration continues forever. For this we have a permanent bureaucracy. The UPA cabinet approved the special category status on March 2, 2014 itself. The proposal was even sent to planning commission. When the planning Commission was studying the issue, NDA government had scrapped it. Now Arun Jaitley says the matter had not had planning commission clearance. If Modi feels he can announce the special category status in minutes,” Rahuvira said.
According to Raghuvira, Naidu is feeling shy of raising the UPA cabinet decision to buttress his defense for special status because the credit goes to Congress government.
“The whole issue is nothing but blatant cheating of people by state and central governments. It’s sheer political bankrutcy on the part of TDP and BJP leadership. We want to drag them to the court on behalf of people of Andhra Pradesh,” the PCC president said in Madakasira, Anantapur district.
