Amaravati (Andhra Pradesh), Feb 19 (ANI): Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu attended "Madiga Maha Bheri", a meeting of Madiga caste people in capital Amravati. In his speech CM Naidu asked Centre to do justice with the state. He said, "Centre should do justice to our state. I am asking only for justice." AP CM said the state has been suffering a lot post bifurcation so he started many welfare schemes for all sections of society. Calling the bifurcation unscientific, CM Naidu said the state had to bear the brunt because congress made grave injustice to the state. He further added that Yuvajana Shramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP), Congress party and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are criticizing him which is not good. "Congress did injustice at the time of bifurcation. Now BJP is not properly implementing the promises," CM Naidu said. Further talking about injustice done by Centre, CM Naidu said reorganization bill was passed under pressurised conditions. Even after 3.5 years, promises are not properly fulfilled. "I went to Delhi 29 times, talked to PM and all central leaders. But nothing much is achieved. Even the 4th budget of NDA is disappointing. That's why we started agitation in parliament. Some people are alleging that we have joined hands with BJP for selfish motives. But our aim is the interests of the state. I won't spare the interests of the state. We will go for sacrifices to any extent." Speaking about people demanding resignation from MPs, he questioned if they resign who will work. "When center said there will be no special status after 14th finance commission, we demanded that all the things in reorganization act should be fulfilled. The center said all of they will be fulfilled through special economic assistance," AP CM said. "I demand the center on behalf of 5 crores Telugu people to fulfill all promises in the bifurcation act. We want hand holding from center for A.P. till it leads in all the southern states." But AP CM asserted that he will continue his fight. "In the forthcoming parliament meetings, we will continue our fight. For that we will take help of all the political parties and the mass organizations."
