Suresh Prabhu's railways budget comes as an utter dismay for the people of AP as neither a single railway line nor a single project was included in the lengthy budget. Above all, there was no announcement on special railway zone to Visakhapatnam which marks BJP's negligence and disgrace on AP.
Prior to the budget sessions in Lok Sabha, the AP CM Chandrababu Naidu visited Delhi many times and met the PM and the union ministers many times seeking sops to AP state in railway budget. But all of his attempts have gone futile.
Incidentally, Cbn and other TDP's leaders used to speak much about 'Telugu Atmagauravam' when Congress was ruling at the center and the state. And now, the TDP has tight lipped about the injustice done to AP in railway budget. Not just the injustice in railway budget, but also the BJP ignored the protests of the TDP, other parties and the people who sought special status to the AP. Activists of other parties are now demanding the TDP to withdraw its alliance with the TDP else, the party would be considered it mortgaged 'Telugu Atmagauravam' at Delhi.
