The Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014 bifurcated the state of Andhra Pradesh, into Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The unscientific division of stately assets created a dirge of resources for the newly formed state of ‘Andhra Pradesh’, now left with no capital city. In 2014, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) joined the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) with the motive of developing the newly formed state of Andhra Pradesh. However, the demands of Telugu Desam party were disregarded by the current Central Government led by Shri Narendra Modi.
For over 4 years, the issues were kept pending by the Central Government and despite the constant efforts by the Hon’ Chief Minister, Shri N. Chandrababu Naidu, the demands were not met. Kesineni Nani fought against this injustice at the central level and highlighted the broken promises that were made to the people of Andhra Pradesh by the BJP. He has advocated ardently for the rights of the people of Andhra Pradesh and has been one of the prominent figures to have led the path for the resolution of the 19 issues, which have been pending in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act.
