BJP leader Kanna Lakshminarayana said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) never promised to give special status to AP. A statement to this effect was made in the Rajya Sabha by former prime minister Manmohan Singh, but it never became an Act, he explained. None of the MPs from the State, except for Venkaiah Naidu urged special status for AP, he observed. The people have favoured the party only because it is fulfilling more than their expectations, he said.
