Questioning if it is wrong to demand Narendra Modi to fulfill promises he made, Naidu said, "He promised to build a capital better than Delhi, but he gave only Rs 1500 crores to Amaravati while Rs 2500 crores are given to build a statue (Sardar Patel statue in Gujarat)".

Naidu has time and again attack PM Modi with clips of his speech in Tirupati in which the prime minister promised the Special Category Status for Andhra Pradesh.

While unmasking the betrayal of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, exactly from the same venue at the abode of Lord Balaji in Tirupati, on the same date, Telugu Desam Party (TDP) held a large public meeting "Nammaka Droham-Kutra Rajakeeyalapai Dharma Porata Bahiranga Sabha" (Fight against Betrayal and Collusion Politics - Public Meeting) on Monday to remind Narendra Modi of his promises. At that meeting, Modi had vowed to fulfil all the commitments made in Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act.

Mr. Naidu accused the Centre of trying to cosy up to the "tainted" YSR Congress Party.

Speaking to reporters, BJP MLCs Somu Veerraju and PVN Madhav on Sunday said that TDP was indulging to "mudslinging" and released a questionnaire addressed to Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu.

The announcement comes at the tail of a regime offensive in the city including the Palestinian refugee camp Yarmouk. The Syrian army captured the IS-controlled areas in al-Qadam on Saturday, according to the state news agency SANA .

He called upon the Telugus living in Karnataka to vote against the BJP in the next month's state Assembly elections. YSRCP leaders conducted a day-long relay hunger strike in Visakhapatnam as part of the programme.

Announcing that similar meetings will be organised in all districts, Naidu predicted that the TDP will win all 25 Lok Sabha seats in the state in the next elections and will decide who will be the next prime minister.

Despite several challenges encountered by it, the TDP government had developed Andhra Pradesh in all sectors in a big way, Naidu added.

The party has been organising cycle and bike rallies in constituencies across the state to create public awareness over the injustice that has been done to Andhra.

As if responding to his detractors' charge on his silence for four years after coming to power, Mr. Naidu said but for his patience and perseverance, the new State would have lost even the funds it had garnered so far and a confrontational attitude would not only have strained the relations with the Centre, but also made the industry go on a rethink on investments. Though four years lapsed Narendra Modi has done nothing to the State.
