Naidu, who left for Delhi to meet and take up state issues with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley ahead of the Budget, told this to reporters here.

“I would seek more funds for the state in the next central budget,” Naidu said.

“I would also ask for more allocation for Polavaram irrigation project, which has been declared as a national project,” the Chief Minister said.

The Union Budget will be presented in the Parliament on February 29.
