Amit Shah’s letter is full of false information: Chandrababu Naidu

Addressing Assembly, the Chief Minister stated “Shah in his letter says centre gave many funds to the state, we couldn’t utilise them. They’re trying to say Andhra Pradesh government is incapable. We have good GDP, agriculture and many national awards. That’s our capability. Why are you spreading lies?

Amaravati, March 24: In a scathing attack, Andhra Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Saturday said Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah’s open letter is full of false information which showed their attitude.

He alleged that the Narendra Modi government is providing special benefits to North Eastern states. Had Andhra Pradesh been given the same hand holding, many industries would have come to the state.

Addressing the state Legislative Assembly, the Chief Minister stated “Shah in his letter says centre gave many funds to the state, we couldn’t utilise them. They’re trying to say Andhra Pradesh government is incapable. We have good GDP, agriculture and many national awards. That’s our capability. Why are you spreading lies?

Defending his party’s decision to pull out from the BJP-led NDA, Naidu said this was done to respect the feelings of people, who were feeling betrayed by the Central government. He said the NDA did not discharge its responsibility towards its ally and the state.

The TDP leader alleged that BJP had done grave injustice to Andhra Pradesh.

Naidu’s reaction came hours after BJP released a letter written by Shah in which he stated that TDP’s decision to quit the NDA was unilateral “guided wholly and solely by political considerations instead of development concerns”.

In a nine-page March 23 letter released on Saturday, Shah described as “untrue and baseless” the TDP chief’s allegations that the BJP was not sensitive to the aspirations of the people of Andhra Pradesh.

Naidu took strong exception to the BJP President attributing ulterior motives to him. “You may have that habit, I don’t have,” he said, reacting to Shah’s remark that he was looking to divert the funds received from the Centre.

Refuting Shah’s claim that the Central government extended all help to the state, he challenged BJP president to come out with facts and respond to the points raised by him in his letter earlier.

The TDP chief read out excerpts from the letter written by him and Shah’s reply. He made a point by point rebuttal to assert that the Central government failed to come to state’s rescue.

Naidu also told the Assembly that even the funds which the Central government had to give to the state towards the share in the taxes were being shown under the assistance extended to the state during last four years.

Prior to this, Naidu’s son Nara Lokesh said BJP Chief was unaware of the state’s issues.

He said the BJP chief penned the letter without a complete understanding of the problems witnessed by the state.
