Stating that his party had introduced the no-confidence motion against the BJP-led NDA government with complete clarity that the Modi government had the numbers to survive it in the Parliament, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu described the motion as primarily a fight for morality agsinst the majority.
He expressed hope that the Modi government do justice to the people of Andhra Pradesh at least now on.
Speaking to the media on Saturday, Naidu said that the Centre had completely neglected the implementation of the promises made to the people of Andhra Pradesh in the A P Reorganization Act.
"Modi forgot his assurance in Tirupati with Lord Venkateswara as witness that the new capital of Andhra Pradesh would be created to be even better than Delhi. The Centre failed to implement even a single promise in the bifurcation act. We tried hard to get funds from the Centre but in vain. We came out of the NDA after losing all patience," he said.
Alleging that it was false that the 14th Finance Commission had recommended that Special Category Status not be given to AP, he said that Finance Commission member T Govinda Rao had disclosed that they hadn't recommended any such thing. And while the Centre had said that Special Category Status would not be given to any state, it was given to 11 states, he pointed out.
"We are waging a moral war against the Centre's betrayal and its politics of conspiracy. We will continue our fight till the state gets justice," he vowed.
