Union Minister Arun Jaitley on Wednesday said that Centre is committed to giving Andhra Pradesh financial assistance equivalent to a special category state.
Virtually putting the Modi government on notice, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Naidu today demanded that the Centre honour the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014 and come out with a clear stand on the state's demands in the next two-three days. He also accused the Congress of killing the mother (combined Andhra Pradesh) to give birth to a baby (Telangana). The TDP MPs, including the two ministers, unanimously agreed with Naidu during a teleconference that Jaitley's statement was disappointing and discouraging.
There is dissatisfaction against Modi in the state, especially over the special status issue and the faulty implementation of the Goods and Services Tax.
The TDP gave an indication of its disapproval by voting against the government's Triple Talaq Bill in the Rajya Sabha.
Chandrababu Naidu had earlier said that the promise of special category status was the only reason for BJP-TDP alliance. On the other hand, the Centre has extended certain benefits - including reimbursement of CGST/IGST and 90% grant for externally aided projects extending over a 10-year period - to already existing special category states. "According to 14th Finance Commission, there is no concept of special category status", added the finance minister.
Later, speaking to reporters, the legislator said he struck upon this novel idea of delayed train to express solidarity with the TDP MPs who would raise their voice in the Parliament on the issues plaguing the State.

Asked about Congress President Rahul Gandhi's promise to get Andhra the "special category status", Jaitley said, "I have to follow constitutional award".
Jaitley said, "We are willing to satisfy every condition". To this, we had proposed that a special goal vehicle in terms of a corporation be set up, where NABARD could deposit money and we would repay funds in the same proportion, so that fiscal deficit of the Centre and state remained unaffected. The 14th Financial Commission said no special status, but we chose to compensate the revenue deficit for a certain period.
"We have time and again told the Centre that Special Category Status is our right as we have suffered immensely due to the unscientific and irrational bifurcation of state".
Naidu hoped the Centre would at least now respect the sentiments of people of Andhra Pradesh.
