Rahul sounds hypocritical when making claims about Andhra Pradesh: BJP

TDP chief and Andhra Pradesh chief minister Chandrababu Naidu

"Issues related to additional funds to address the revenue deficit in the State have been addressed".

"Following the recommendations of the 14th Finance Commission, the class of special category State ceases to exist, but the NDA government, to bridge the funds deficit with regard to Centrally Sponsored Schemes (CSS), which is upto 30% of such schemes, will be paid out".

Both the Andhra Pradesh government and the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), an ally of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), on Sunday strongly disputed the figures mentioned by the saffron party regarding the Centre's financial assistance to Andhra Pradesh post bifurcation. The TD leaders asked Mr Hari Babu whe-ther AP was part of the country or not as the BJP is claiming Doordarshan and passport offices were given to the state after bifurcation which the TD said is a mandate when a new state is formed.

BJP Steps Down For AP's Protests: Key Announcements:- With poor allocations for Andhra Pradesh in the recent Union budget, BJP has been slammed badly by the people along with the politicians across the state. Is it believable?"He said Polavaram was to be completed by 2019 and as per 2014-15 estimates Rs 54,000 crore was needed". MP Galla Jayadev said the onus lies on the Centre to keep on extending handhold to the state, till it reaches the level playing field, as par with other neighbouring states.

South Africa's Ramaphosa: ANC Working to Resolve Fate of Zuma
Zuma has clung to power after rejecting a request by his party's senior officials to resign a week ago. The president, who denies wrongdoing, is due to end his second five-year term at elections next year.

It said the BJP had promised to cover the entire cost of the Polavaram project, but it had released only Rs 4,662 crore until then, while Rs 7,900 crore had been spent on the project.

The TD said that the Cen-tre had released only Rs 90 crore in four years.

Interestingly, TDP State president K Kala Venkata Rao, also the state's energy minister, was present by Singh's side but remained silent as the Union minister brushed aside the MPs' agitation. There hasn't been any notable progress in the Vijayawada - Visakhapatnam metro rail project, and no budget has been allocated for the project for 2018-2019. He said there was no discussion on the steel plant in Kadapa. The construction of the new capital city Amaravathi, the Polavaram project, across the river Godavari, and establishment of railway zone should be fulfilled especially to AP as they were incorporated in the Reorganisation Act, he MP explained.
