Kadapa: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu on Thursday said it was the responsibility of the Centre to safeguard the interests of the state and fulfil promises made during its bifurcation in 2014.

"It is the responsibility of the Central government to safeguard and protect the interests of the new (residuary) state," he said while talking to reporters on his second day of visit.

The Centre has to fulfil all the assurances given to the state under the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014 which led to the creation of Telangana, Naidu said.
