What Did Naidu Get From All-Party Meet?

"You booked cases against us and threw us in jails when we were fighting for the state's cause", they said, referring to the agitations over the last three years seeking special category status (SCS) for the state.

In another video clip of his speech at the foundation stone laying ceremony at Amaravati on October 22, 2015, the PM says, "I am assuring you that all the assurances given in the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014, would be fulfilled by the government". "Help or no help from the Centre, we will build the world class capital in Amaravati".

His Hindi address was translated to Telugu by the BJP leader and current vice-president Venkaiah Naidu.

TDP had severed its ties with the BJP-led NDA on 16 March claiming that the Centre has not fulfilled the commitments- made by then prime minister Manmohan Singh in the Parliament and the ones mentioned in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act- made to the bifurcated state. "The BJP is propagating lies that we have not submitted the UCs". As a chief minister of the state, I am asking this question to prime minister.

The leaders also said that SCS was the state's legal right.

Committee to take comments on special elections bill

South Korea North Korea Kim World Tour?
After six years of seclusion, it appears North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has decided it's time to get out and see the world. Beijing is secretive and isolated North Korea's main ally, as well as its biggest trading partner.

Making a suo-moto statement in the assembly on the all-party meeting held yesterday, the Chief Minister flayed the Modi government, vis- -vis fulfillment of the promises made to AP post-bifurcation. YSRC has objected to Naidu leading a fight for securing special category status and asserted that it would not be party to "yet another conspiracy" of the chief minister.

Allaying fears that the ongoing welfare programmes might get affected by the TDP government's anti centre stance, Naidu said that development and welfare would not be affected, come what may.

While informing the House about resolutions passed at all party meet, Naidu also hit out at YSR Congress and Jana Sena for not attending the all-party meeting. Both, the YSRCP and Pawan Kalyan's Jana Sena party, boycotted the meeting and criticised it. Calling for a united fight, Naidu assured that another all-party meeting will take place so that more people can be roped in for collective fight for Special Status.

The Congress and various other organisations, however, backed the resolution.
