Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu today said there is no clarity on the Centre’s stand on according special status to his state and demanded that it keep the promises made during bifurcation.

Talking to reporters on the sidelines of Krishna Pushkaram river festival, he said the Centre today released about Rs 1,800 crore fund whereas the state was to get Rs 16,000 crore on account of revenue deficit.

“We got only Rs 1000 crore on account of revenue deficit today. The rest was for other purposes including backwards area development. The state was promised this fund as after bifurcation, revenue-generating capital Hyderabad went to Telangana.

“We are having a problem of finances. We came here (the present situation) carrying debt on our head,” he said.
He also said there were problems between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana and the Centre should intervene to solve the issues.

“We are waiting for the solutions,” he said.
He rued that educational and other institutions have remained in Hyderabad and his state does not have enough funds for building these here.

Naidu evaded a question as to why the NDA has gone into hibernation.

Naidu’s TDP is a part of NDA at the Centre.

On the Constitution amendment bill on GST, he said Andhra Pradesh will ratify it soon.

Krishna Pushkaram is a 12-day festival that comes once in every 12 years. Over three crore devotees are expected to take a holy dip in the river Krishna across Andhra Pradesh.
