The TDP leader discussed the issue of Special Category Status and the "injustice" met out to his state by the Centre during the meeting.

The TDP chief also spoke in an interview with NDTV on the issue of special status and said, "Injsutice has been done to Andhra Pradesh, the bifurcation of the state is not scientific, even now, the bifurcation act implementation has not taken place, and also to pass the bill they (Centre) has given some assurance on the floor of the house ..." According to news agency ANI, Arvind Kejriwal will meet the Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu in Andhra Bhawan in Delhi later in the day. DMK's Kanimozhi and AIADMK's V Maitreyan also met Naidu.

Though the BJP leadership largely stayed away, a few party leaders who met him included Murli Manohar Joshi, Kirti Azad, Hema Malini and Jayant Sinha.

"Had they given us special status within the first year, I would have saved Rs 3,000-5,000 crore". Despite my 29 visits to Delhi during the last four years, nothing has happened, except minor things.

Reiterating the Centre's commitment towards the development of Andhra Pradesh, Javadekar ridiculed Naidu's politics. "But at the moment, we are only asking for what is our right and are not anxious about politics". "During a meet in Tirupati, the PM had said that the capital city of Amravati will be better than Delhi".

At the time the album dropped, she posted other images from the same shoot showing a model that is definitely not Brophy. The song is the latest single from Cardi's debut album, Invasion of Privacy , which comes out this Friday .

"When we raise our voice for our demands, you want to control, harass us you dont want to release money". The Central Government is indulging in mud-slinging and it is painful. "The CM's visit to Delhi is only to garner support for the benefit of the state", AP ministers Somireddy Chandramohan Reddy and state TDP president Kimidi Kala Venkata Rao told the media after a meeting of the TDP Legislature Party before Naidu left for Delhi.

"I did not reach out to the Tamil Nadu Government".

"They have to tell us the reasons". "They [AIADMK] should support our cause".

On a question if the Union government was specifically acting against southern states, Naidu said progressive states should be encouraged and not discouraged. I am not talking as TDP president. He lambasted on the Central Government and also clarified BJP's accusation of diverting funds in Andhra Pradesh by saying, "This isn't the way of dealing with states".

Subsequently, the BJP refuted Naidu's charges and ridiculed him for his attempts to seek support from the Opposition.
