Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has once again sung the same song on the demand issue of Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh. He has made it clear that though they have a soft corner towards the state, funds cannot be allocated on the basis of sentiments. In a bid to pacify Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu over his attack at the Center, Arun Jaitley said the Centre was committed to fulfilling the promises mentioned in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014. He claimed the Centre had repeatedly said that it was ready to give the quantum of funds. His statement has disappointed AP people including the CM Chandrababu Naidu. Watch a debate on this issue.
