Rs 12k crore sanctioned as 'special assistance' to Andhra, Centre tells Parliament

Mr. Naidu said that he believes that with the full utilization of the marine resources, and the 1,000km long coastline, coastal Andhra Pradesh can be developed into an aqua hub. BJP in this manner might be hit in both directions from YSRCP and TDP, and YSRCP would not want an alliance with BJP because that would mean losing its Christian and Dalit vote base.

When Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Vijay Goel rose to make a statement on behalf of Minister of State for Drinking Water and Sanitation S S Ahluwalia, Naidu said, "Statement has to be made by the minister concerned". The only Congress member protesting in the Well was K V P Ramachandra Rao from Andhra Pradesh.

The demand of the special category not being granted to Andhra Pradesh didn't sit right with the TDP.

Members from TDP, which quit the central government last week but remains part of the ruling NDA, demanded special status for Andhra Pradesh.

"When I had asked for special financial assistance to build a world-class capital at Amaravati, the central finance minister "made fun of" me, stating that it was my 'dream city.' After the unilateral division, Andhra Pradesh was left with no capital city. The southern states contribute maximum tax revenues to the Centre, but it is diverting the money to the development of northern states".

Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu asked the members to return to their seats and allow the Zero Hour proceedings.

The Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the day on Wednesday, minutes after it reassembled at 2 pm, without transacting any business amid a ruckus by government ally TDP and the AIADMK members over various issues.

The vice-president said if the legislatures do not provide a solution to the problems faced by the people, then they would be failing in their duty.

Soon after submitting his resignation as Health Minister Kamineni Srinivas of the BJP took an entourage of reporters and partymen to the construction site of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) hospital-cum-medical college near Guntur to show the "brisk pace of work".

Naidu is also facing severe pressure from his party too. Modi's conversation with Chandrababu Naidu doesn't seem to have worked. "Even if the TDP pulls out of this alliance, we will continue to fulfil all the projects that have been promised so far".
