Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has decided to stage a protest on the final day of the budget session on February 13 to bring the nation's attention towards the injustices being meted out by centre to AP.
The decision was taken at a TDP Parliamentary Committee meeting held at Amaravati on Saturday where Naidu mentioned that he would be joining the TDP MPs in the protest. This is not the first occasion where Naidu would be going on a protest in New Delhi. Earlier in 2014, he had gone on a day-long fast demanding equal justice to both the Telugu states.
Naidu, who has been actively keeping a track of all the happenings in parliament and activities of TDP MPs by issuing directions to them will be directly protesting with them for the first time. Already a similar campaign called 'Dharma Porata Diksha' aimed at protesting against centre's indifference towards state has been going on for a year in AP receiving mixed responses.
The party is hoping that this protest by Naidu would be helpful in cornering the NDA government while bringing the topic of injustice meted out to the state into focus ahead of the parliamentary elections.
"It is the responsibility of the central government to fulfill its promises," said Naidu on several occasions earlier. Naidu has also asked several ministers and TDP legislators taking up protests in their respective constituencies. "Our leader has always fought for the rights of Telugu people. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been vindictive towards AP for unknown reasons. The entire country should know the injustice centre has done to AP," said TDP spokesperson, Lanka Dinakar.
