The entire Andhra Pradesh is feeling cheated by the ruling BJP as the Modi government has failed to keep its 2014 election promise of according special status to Andhra Pradesh for 10 years.
After the centre failed to make any clear assurances to the state during the ongoing monsoon sessions of the Parliament, there has been an overwhelming dissent against BJP from the TDP leaders and even common people.
While media thought that TDP's Hindupur MLA Balakrishna stayed aloof from the special status, Balayya today fired on the BJP with strong words. Balayya warned BJP that it will have to face severe consequences if it doesn't accord special status to Andhra Pradesh.
Balayya went on to state that AP need not beg any one for special status and that BJP should keep its promise and grant the special status immediately. Balayya met Minister Atchennaidu at the Secretariat and explained about the issues in his Hindupur constituency.
