Congress Party president Rahul Gandhi recently visited AP. He has attended a huge meeting in Kurnool. He has breathed fire on the ruling BJP government at the center. Rahul said that the BJP government has cheated AP by ignoring the implementation of the promises made to AP during the bifurcation of the state.
He said that Congress party has a special affection towards Andhra Pradesh right from the beginning. He said that Damodaram Sanjeevayya was the first Dalit CM in the country. He said Jawahar Lal Nehru made him the CM even though some people told him that he was a corrupted man. Nehru had sent a team to Kurnool to check the facts in the allegations and the team found out to be false. Nehru made him the CM immediately. Rahul said that AP needs an honest CM like Sanjeevayya now.
On the other hand, he said that Congress has made several promises to AP during the bifurcation. The then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh promised Special Category Status to AP in the parliament. When Manmohan Singh said SCS for 5 years, BJP leaders who were sitting in the opposition demanded it for 10 years period. But BJP has not implemented the promises and cheated the people of AP. Rahul said that Congress will give special status to AP if it voted to power.
