"That is not your money or our money".

Party sources said Naidu is planning to rake up the Andhra sentiment and self-respect in all his speeches in the coming days.

TDP and YSR Congress members were seen in the well of the House on their demand for special status to Andhra Pradesh while AIADMK and DMK wanted Cauvery Management Board. It's people's money, paid as taxes. "The southern states contribute maximum tax revenues to the Centre, but it is diverting the money to the development of northern states". "We reposed faith in Modi but he is not in a position to make it a reality, he said in his reply to the motion of thanks to the Governors Address".

According to ANI, Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress has given a notice in Rajya Sabha seeking a discussion under rule 168 over the PNB fraud scam case. "He also charged the Centre with "deliberately" postponing things and finding excuses and propagating that he had accepted (what all they said)"...

The first week of the second part of the Budget session which began on 5 March has been a virtual washout.

Earlier, Mr. Naidu countered the claims of Mr. Raju who said it was the BJP that was actually committed to the development of Andhra Pradesh and that M. Venkaiah Naidu had initially demanded the SCS and listed out the institutions required for the State soon after bifurcation. "So I am requesting.Andhra should be immediately granted special category status", the chief minister said.

Chandrababu Naidu has directed MPs to explain to everyone about the state of affairs in the Parliament and continue the fight till demands are fulfilled and justice is delivered.

Arun Jaitley's remarks; sentiments can not increase the quantum of funds, during a press meet raised political heat between TDP and BJP both at the Centre and the State.

"You can't forget that fact". Naidu was responding to Jaitley's comments that funds, support from centre and special status can not be possible based on the political sentiments in the state.

He, however, had promised Andhra Pradesh funds equivalent to what a special category state receives and said his government was committed to meeting all promises made to Andhra Pradesh at the time of carving out Telengana.
