BJP will soon be rejected by the entire country: Chandrababu Naidu; Is he saying right ?
New Delhi/Amaravati : TDP president Chandrababu Naidu on Friday asked the party’s MPs to intensify their protest here for special category status for Andhra Pradesh.
In a tele-conference with TDP MPs, Naidu said, “The BJP is running away by repeatedly adjourning the House for these many days. If Parliament is adjourned sine die, MPs must meet the President. The BJP is acting on the lines of divide and rule.”
Friday was the last day of Parliament’s second part of the Budget Session.
This morning in Amaravati, the Andhra Pradesh chief minister led a cycle rally of his ministers and TDP legislators protesting against the Centre’s attitude towards the state, vis-a-vis the implementation of the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014.
“Already people of AP are not accepting the BJP. Soon, there will be a day when the BJP will not be accepted by the entire country,” Naidu said in a statement issued by his media cell.
“We will not step back until assurances made in the Rajya Sabha, including Special Category status and provisions of the AP Reorganisation Act, are fulfilled,” he said.
Responding to YSR Congress MPs not taking part in a protest held by his party MPs in the Parliament complex on Thursday, Naidu said it was an example of the party’s collusion politics.
“In the past, some natives used to collude with Britishers. In the same way, YSRCP is now colluding with the Centre,” he said in the statements.
TDP MPs on Thursday protested in the Rajya Sabha chamber and refused to leave even after the House was adjourned for the day at around 2.30 pm.
The members were around 8.15 pm marshalled out along with the party’s Lok Sabha MPs who held protests in the Central Hall in solidarity.
The TDP parted ways with the NDA last month alleging failure in fulfilling the promises made in the State Reorganisation Act.

Rajiv Jain appointed media adviser to Haryana Chief Minister Khattar. Is this posting boost the Haryana Govt. Image ?
Chandigarh : Senior BJP leader and state BJP’s media incharge Rajiv Jain was on Friday appointed Media Adviser to Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.
Decks were cleared for Jain’s appointment on Thursday evening when Jain’s wife Kavita Jain was divested of the Information and Public Relations portfolio by the Haryana Governor to avoid ‘conflict of interest’.
Besides Information and Public Relations, Kavita holds the charge of Urban Local Bodies and Women and Child Development.
Jain, who had also dabbled in journalism before venturing into politics, had been Media Adviser to late chief minister Bansi Lal from 1996-99.
Recently, Amit Arya, Media Adviser to the Chief Minister, was shifted to New Delhi for coordinating with the media in the National Capital, and lobbying started for the post.
The sudden transfer of Arya, who had been Khattar’s media adviser for about three years, seemed to be the fallout of differences with a top functionary in the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO).
TDP seeks JPC on special status. Is the TDP right ?
New Delhi : Andhra Pradesh CM and TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu on Wednesday warned PM Narendra Modi of a public backlash for backtracking on the “special status” promise made to the people of the state.
At a press conference here, he said his visit to the Capital was to seek wider political support for special status to the state, as promised by the UPA government in 2014 while legislating the Andhra Pradesh Re-organisation Act. Playing clips of PM Modi’s election speeches in Andhra, he asked: “What happened to these promises?”
He said the Centre had been trying to “damage his credibility” ever since his party began a fight for “special category” status to the state. He demanded a joint parliamentary committee (JPC) to look into the issue.
On BJP’s charge that he had parted ways with the NDA for “vested political interests”, he said he had waited for four years and made 29 visits to Delhi. “The total neglect of Andhra Pradesh in the 2018-19 Budget was the last straw,” he said. He circulated a dossier detailing the circumstances under which the state was split “against the wishes of the people”, and the status of projects and pending funds.
The CM said Union Finance Minster Arun Jaitley, citing the Finance Commission’s recommendations against special status, had said it would be provided help through “special assistance measure” that would include all ingredients of special status. “Even this has not materialised with the Centre imposing new conditions.” Earlier in the day, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal called on Naidu.
