If the ongoing reports are to be believed, the Narendra Modi-led NDA government is likely to announce a Rs. 2 lakh crore special package Andhra Pradesh during Modi's visit to Vizag to inaugurate the expansion work of the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant in January.
If this news indeed becomes true, it will surely bring some cheer to the people who have been deeply upset with PM Modi not uttering a single word regarding the special status or special package during the Amaravati inaugural ceremony.
Apparently, the BJP government is waiting for the right time to announce the special package as the Bihar elections will come to an end and there won't be any problems from the opposition. Apart from the package, the centre may also announce a special railway zone to Vizag.
It is well known that Modi, during his election campaign in Bihar, announced Rs 1.25 lakh crore special package to Bihar. The BJP's central heads are also determined to strengthen the party's roots in AP and Telangana and a committee will be formed under the leadership of Amit Shah.
