ANDHRA PRADESH REORGANISATION ACT.

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.

SEPARATE RAILWAY ZONE FOR AP

Background

Several promises were made by the Central Government and the relevant Govt. organisations during the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh in 2014; many of which still are pending with minimal signs of completion. As the anticipation is rising among the people of Andhra Pradesh, there seems to be no improvement in the speed of development by the Central Government.

A Separate Railway Zone!

The rapidly increasing need for mobility from the people of Andhra Pradesh is not well served by the existing Railway zones in neighboring states. A separate railway zone in the state would not only provide better ease of transportation to its people but also lead to the creation to new employment opportunities.

NO CONFIDENCE MOTION

In July 2018, Kesineni Nani moved a No Confidence Motion against the current Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, and the National Democratic Alliance for swindling the newly formed state of Andhra Pradesh and not living up to the promises made to its people. In the Lok Sabha meeting held subsequently, several national and regional parties such as the Aam Aadmi Party, the Trinamool Congress, the CPI(M), and the Indian National Congress rallied support for Nani and the Telugu Desam party.

After the bifurcation of the erstwhile state in 2013, the two newly formed states, viz, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh have major differences in their economic status. While Telangana still holds more revenue, the newly formed state, Andhra Pradesh, had to start afresh and rebuild its financial and political capital. Moreover, a loan of ₹1.3 lakh crore continues to exist for the latter.
