TDP MP raises demands supplementary funds of Rs 35,000 crore for Andhra Pradesh
TDP MP Murali Mohan Maganti lashed out at the Narendra Modi over the demand for special status for Andhra Pradesh. "This is the last chance for this Union government to allocate sufficient funds. The NDA is showing indifference to the state and its people. Power comes and goes but the will of the country is a fair thing for consideration. Further, most of the revenue comes from the southern states," he said.
He criticised the NDA government for "boasting" about releasing more funds than any other governments for the state, while hitting out at the Prime Minister Narendra Modi for saying that the state wasn't bifurcated scientifically. "Instead of digging up the past, you should at least render justice to people of Andhra Pradesh."
He urged the Union government to release funds to the tune of Rs 35,000 crore for Andhra Pradesh. "The Andhra Pradesh is reeling under several revenue deficit. The government has so far released Rs 2500 crore," he said.
