Rajya Sabha adjourned for the day amid ruckus by TDP, AIADMK


But the way Naidu spoke in the Andhra Pradesh legislative council on Monday clearly proved that he is gradually building up a tempo among the people that the Centre was neglecting AP just to prove the domination of the north.

Deputy Chairman P.J. Kurien repeatedly asked the agitating members to go back to their seats, but they did not relent. He also demanded to know from the Centre why a state divided on the basis of sentiment can't be given special category status based on the same sentiment.

While explaining the government's stand on the special category demand, Arun Jaitley had said last week that "every state in India has the right to the central fund in the same manner".

The facilities, needed to make Visakhapatnam into an aqua hub, are in the process of being developed by the Marine Products Exports Development Authority (MPEDA) and the Andhra Pradesh State Government.

"There is nothing called Centre's or state's money". It's people's money, paid as taxes. "The southern states contribute maximum tax revenues to the Centre, but it is diverting the money to the development of northern states".
