Andra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu reacted to the open letter of BJP president Amit Shah and dismissed it and calls it full of false information, BJP spreading lies about AP government. Amit Shah on Friday wrote a open letter to AP CM C Naidu, where he said, Telugu Desam Party leader on said that the party's decision to quit the NDA is 'both unfortunate as well as unilateral.'
Responding to the letter, Naidu said that Telugu Desam Party's (TDP) decision to leave NDA government was guiding by "political considerations", saying that it is full of false information.
"Amit Shah's letter is full of false information which shows their attitude. Even now Centre is providing special benefits to North Eastern states. Had Andhra Pradesh been given the same hand holding, many industries would have come to the state," Naidu said.
"Amit Shah in his letter says Centre gave many funds to the state, we couldn't utilise them. They're trying to say Andhra Pradesh government is incapable. Our government has good GDP, agriculture and many national awards. That's our capability. Why are you spreading lies?" he asked.
Naidu further asserted that, the Shah's letter was full of false information and this attitude of the centre was the prime reason for lagging behind in the development of several industries in the state. “Even now Centre is providing special benefits to North Eastern states. Had Andhra Pradesh been given the same hand holding, many industries would have come to the state,” ANI quoted him as saying.
Amit Shah further wrote in letter that, that Naidu's assertion that the BJP is 'insensitive' to the aspirations of the Andra Pradesh is 'untrue and baseless'.
This decision is both unfortunate & unilateral. It's a decision;I am afraid, will be construed as being guided wholly & solely by political considerations instead of developmental concerns: Amit Shah in a letter to #AndhraPradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu on TDP's decision to quit NDA pic.twitter.com/pSnAm01quU— ANI (@ANI) March 24, 2018
“Your assertions that the BJP is not sensitive to the aspirations of the people of Andhra Pradesh and has not implemented the provisions of the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014, and assurances given by the then Prime Minister in the Rajya Sabha is untrue and baseless,” Shah said.
