LK Advani says justice needs to be done to Andhra Pradesh

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday said his party supports Andhra Pradesh's demand for special category status and urged political parties to "unite" and "support" the cause.

The Centre has released Rs 1,269 crore to Andhra Pradesh under different heads in the last few days amid a strain in ties between the NDA and ally TDP over the state's allocation in the Union Budget, reported PTI. "It's time for all parties to unite on this issue and support this call for justice". Key Announcements: Strong protests made BJP step down and TDP MPs too played a crucial role in the Parliament through their protests after which key announcements have been made.

The Telugu Desam Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party on Sunday continued their slugfest with the former dubbing the 27-page status report - on Central aid to Andhra Pradesh - publicised by the BJP as a "cinema script or fiction document". Make no mistake, no state has ever developed because of centre's help or special status or package. "A resolution with regard to the final balance amount is being discussed with the government of Andhra Pradesh", he said.

"Prime Minister Narendra Modi is fully committed to and honest in implementing the States Reorganisation Act", Hari Babu said.
