In his each day teleconference with the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leaders, Naidu mentioned the Centre had cheated the state within the final 5 budgets.
“1 February is a black day for the state. The BJP-led government at the Centre has discriminated against the state at every step. Unless the BJP is trounced at the hustings, justice will not be done to Andhra Pradesh” the chief minister mentioned.
He requested his celebration cadre to watch peaceable protests by sporting black badges and displaying black flags when the Centre presents the funds for 2019-20.
Referring to stories in China Global Times, a newspaper in China, Naidu mentioned failures of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s authorities have been being publicised even in China.
“The country has been pushed into chaos under Modi’s rule. There is widespread antagonism towards Modi due to unemployment. People are opposing the BJP,” he mentioned.
The Andhra chief minister alleged discrimination in opposition to the state with regard to the central authorities releasing funds on Tuesday to varied states by way of the National Disaster Relief Fund.
“Maharashtra has been given Rs 4,717 crore while Andhra Pradesh got only Rs 900 crore for drought relief. Andhra suffered extensive damage running into thousands of crores of rupees due to cyclone Titli. Cyclone Phethai also caused severe destruction, but the Centre did not grant even a rupee,” Naidu lamented.
