Rajahmundry: BJP national president Amit Shah on Thursday accused Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N.

He predicted the end of Mr Naidu's political life following the elections.
The BJP chief mocked Mr Naidu for visiting Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and New Delhi, either to extend support to other leaders staging a dharna or to stage a dharna of his own to demand SCS for AP ignoring the development of his state.
He said the BJP-led NDA government had implemented nearly 90 per cent of provisions incorporated in the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014, in five years even though the Act itself mentioned that it be implemented within 10 years.
He listed out setting up of 20 prestigious central educational institutions and launch of several other major projects like development of international airports at Visakhapatnam, Vijayawada and Tirupati and said no state in the country other than Andhra Pradesh was given so many institutions and developmental projects in such a short span of time.
He said the Centre had given enough funds for construction of capital city Amaravati and also the Polavaram irrigation project and alleged that the Andhra government was resorting to funds abuse. He said that when the Centre asked for accountability for the funds sanctioned for various schemes and projects, Andhra Pradesh chief minister Naidu was getting irritated and adopted a counter-strategy of misinformation against the BJP-led NDA regime, claiming that it was not sanctioning adequate funds to the state....
