It is time for the AP MPs and TDP political strategists to pack their bags to Andhra Pradesh. Without any further delay, the TDP & Team can end their agitations, and protests (or even dramas, if you wish so), towards ‘AP Special Category Status’.
The Ministry of Finance has confirmed that granting Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh would be highly sceptical. It also added that, if AP is giving incentives that are given to eastern states, then other states too would be demanding for the same.
‘Today you are saying it is Telugu people’s sentiment. If we grant the Special Category Status to you today, tomorrow Tamil and Malayalam people will come up with their sentiment. We will be forced to take them into consideration. Fulfilling the ‘Special Package’ is more beneficial than anything else. Rest all are not possible.
The AP Government failed to justify even a single rupee granted by the Centre. It is absolutely senseless to ask that, if other states are being given, why aren’t giving to Andhra Pradesh. Tax incentives are not at all possible.
Andhra Pradesh politicians are raising political heat among them, in name of self-esteem or self-respect,’ said the Ministry of Finance.
It is time for the people of Andhra Pradesh to teach the BJP-led Central Government, and AP Politician a lesson for life.
