Amaravati, March 16: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, whose TDP pulled out of BJP-led NDA on Friday, said during the last four years, the Narendra Modi government never cared about the problems faced by the state and did injustice to it in all the union budgets.

Addressing the the state legislative council, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief said that in the last budget (2018-19), the government did not even bother to mention Andhra Pradesh.

Reminding Prime Minister Narendra Modi about his poll promise that he will build a state capital which will be better than New Delhi, Naidu said it was same Modi who had targeted the Congress party during 2014 election campaign over the manner in which it carved out Telangana from Andhra Pradesh.

He pointed out that Modi had compared Congress to a doctor who killed the mother to facilitate birth of the child.

The Chief Minister said the Bharatiya Janata Party, which was then in opposition, promised to fulfil all commitments including special category status to the state but forgot all the promises after coming to power.

Naidu told the House that TDP joined the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) for the sake of the state’s interests. “We never demanded any post. They made two of our MPs the ministers,” he said.
