Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised Special Status to Andhra Pradesh and Delhi like Capital for the state at the feet of Lord Venkateswara Swamy in Tirupati during the Election Campaign before 2014 elections. Later on, Modi went on to ascend Delhi throne and all the promises were forgotten.
Special Status was replaced by Special Package which is a mere eyewash as everyone known but then no one can really fight the all-powerful Prime Minister given the absolute majority BJP holds in the Parliament. The Delhi like Capital is only worth some 25000 Crore of Central Assistance.
Modi did not Speak about a word about the Special Status after becoming the Prime Minister and only brought ‘Mud and Water’ to the foundation stone ceremony of Amaravati. The Prime Minister is going to address Andhra Pradesh for the first time in a BJP Public meeting which may be held on January 2nd or 3rd.
Modi is coming to Tirupati for Science Congress and BJP is planning to arrange this huge public meeting at the same time. Since it is a Public meeting arranged by the party, Narendra Modi will have to definitely speak about the promises made to the state. It has to be seen what Modi speaks up about the forgotten promises at the Lord’s feet
