"Army Will Never Stage A Coup": PM Modi Slams Alleged Fake Stories

Chandrababu Naidu will undertake a day-long fast in Delhi on Monday, seeking special category status for the state and fulfilment of other commitments made by the Centre at the time of state's bifurcation.

Naidu is scheduled to pay tributes to Mahatma Gandhi at Raj Ghat and also to the Ambedkar Statue at the Andhra Pradesh Bhavan before sitting on the hunger strike.

The Telugu Desam Party had walked out the BJP-led NDA past year protesting the "injustice" done to Andhra Pradesh after its bifurcation. "They have come to our country and embraced the idea and ethos of Mother India", he said. The two trains will leave from Srikakulam and Anantapur districts. On Tuesday, Mr. Naidu and a delegation of MPs, MLAs and Cabinet colleagues will present a memorandum on the issue to President Ramnath Kovind.

Making a pitch for his government ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the PM said that while the previous governments neglected the state for decades, the NDA government is trying to help in the development of North East. Leaders of TDP participated in the protests in various towns.

Modi alleged that Naidu had ignored the state's development and joined in the competition to abuse him. "The NDA's approach to national security is different", he said, adding it was his government's dream to make the country self-sufficient in defence production and where "our forces have all possible support they require in keeping our nation safe".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday accused the Congress of neglecting the defence sector and claimed that for the Opposition party it was only about brokering deals, PTI reported.

Hours later, the latter launched a counter-offensive at a public meeting in Vijayawada. Modi said that Naidu, who keeps reminding him of his seniority is only 'senior in backstabbing'.

Modi, remembering NTR, also called out the Congress saying that it was due to their arrogance that NTR swore to rid the state from Congress rule.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi reiterated here on Sunday that his Government would always strive for the welfare of the people of Andhra Pradesh and "it is the U-turn Chief Minister of the State, Sriman Chandrababu Naidu, who is responsible for the difficulties faced by the people of Andhra Pradesh".
