They are apparently predetermined. But he was not reachable. "My OSD has conveyed it to the PM's OSD", Naidu said. Raju is out of reach and may be travelling as he is supposed to reach Hyderabad on Thursday morning to attend a function at Begumpet Airport.

For Andhra Pradesh, the 90:10 funding of schemes instead of usual 60:40 would be implemented "notwithstanding the fact that the word special status is not there", he said. "The issue between both the parties has come to a climax as they have expressed what they can do and we have expressed what we want", Sivaprasad told PTI. "For me the sole agenda is to safeguard the interests of the state", he said. Posts are not important for us.

Naidu had lashed out at the Centre saying it was "insulting the sentiments" of the people of the state by not honouring the promises made in the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014 and also in Parliament. The TDP MPs, including the two ministers, unanimously agreed with Naidu during a teleconference that Jaitley's statement was disappointing and discouraging. His another tweet said that he was not angry with anyone but his party had no option but to leave the government to benefit the 'people of Andhra Pradesh.' He wrote, "I am not angry with anyone". Apparently, all the party in unison made a decision to quit NDA and expose BJP, Modi.

"We wanted to convey the information about pulling out from the government to Prime Minister Narendra Modi out of courtesy, but he could not be contacted". This comment didn't go down well with the TDP, a party that came up out of the blue in Andhra Pradesh in the 1980s in response to Rajiv Gandhi's alleged insult of the then T Anjaiah. Political and apolitical bodies have been carrying out protests across the state seeking justice. "Why are they speaking such things?" said a miffed Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister. But AP is not the first state asking for the status; Bihar and Odisha have done so earlier.

Jaitley added that after the 14th Finance Commission report, the term "special category status" doesn't exist any longer. Naidu had repeatedly insisted on special category state status for Andhra Pradesh following mounting pressure from the opposition. "It is a simple formula".
