AP Minister Somireddy Chandramohan Reddy responded on NITI Aayog Vice Chairman Rajeev's comments and said there was AP people's contribution in the development of Hyderabad. He said Rajeev didn't think of the deficits AP has been facing after bifurcation. While faulting his comments, he said it is not wise to stop special package or special status for those reasons. He said AP people's 60 years of efforts were left in Hyderabad after bifurcation. He said it is central govt's responsibility to compensate the deficits.
