He accuses them of not implementing their promise on SCS

radesh Congress Committee (PCC) president N. Raghuveera Reddy on Monday filed a complaint against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu and Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu for not implementing their promise of granting special status to Andhra Pradesh.

Mr. Raghuveera Reddy, who started off to the Madakasira police station with supporters from his house at Madakasira mandal headquarters village, he was stopped by the police refusing entry into the station with all his supporters, leading to a protest, culminating in the police arresting him and a few of his supporters including former Madakasira MLA Sudhakar Reddy.

However, the police soon let him go after which he filed the complaint with the police, in which were attached, a copy of the speech of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Tirupati made prior to the elections besides copies of the UPA II government promising the state of Andhra Pradesh special category status.

“The UPA II government was categorical in its support of Special Category Status to the state. But the NDA government, in spite of its clear pre poll promise to implement the promises of the previous government, had clearly gone back on it while the State government seems to be least bothered about it,” Mr. Raghuveera Reddy, told The Hindu .



Special package

Further, he said the fact that even the special package for the north coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema districts, as promised in the AP Reorganisation Act 2014, not being implemented showed the ‘utter lack of intent’ on the part of the Union government.

He accused Mr. Chandrababu Naidu of having pawned the interests of the state to save himself in the ‘Vote for Cash’ scam.
