Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi explained the meaning of Special Status at the public meeting in Guntur today. He said that normally states get 70 per cent funds in the form of loans and 30 per cent funds in the form of grant. But states with special status will get 90 per cent in the form of grant. The money could be utilised for development of the state, he said. Why the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and YSRCP do not want special status, is a mystery, he observed.
