The first Chief Minister of truncated Andhra Pradesh Chandrababu Naidu is going through difficult phase in his career. Although Naidu has been doing his best to set new state in order, issues have been hitting back one after the other. Be it deficit budget or new capital row or GAIL fire accident or cyclone Hudhud, Naidu is flooded with problems.
Even before Seemandhra come to terms with the loss incurred due to bifurcation and losing of its capital Hyderabad to Telangana, and now AP’s biggest city Vizag is reduced to a heap of debris and the onus lies on Naidu to build the city from scratch.
While Naidu asked Centre for release of Rs 2000 Crore aid immediately, PM Modi has only announced Rs 1000 Crore adhoc towards relief measures. Chandrababu demanded Centre to announce cyclone Hudhud as “national calamity” but in vain. Naidu also sought Union Government to announce a compensation of Rs 5 Lakh for the kin of deceased but Modi confined to Rs 2 Lakh ex-gratia. This is not all.
In fact, Centre government is yet to announce Special Status to Andhra Pradesh and grant financial package to the state for rebuilding new capital. Except media statements, nothing has been done by Modi government to the State. All these aspects pushing Naidu into disappointment over Narendra Modi.
