Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief N Chandrababu Naidu on Monday came out all guns blazing at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said the state will have its due.

"If you won't fulfill our demands, we know how to get them fulfilled. This is about self respect of people of AP. Whenever there is an attack on our self-respect,we won't tolerate it. I am warning this government and particularly the PM to stop attacking an individual," ANI quoted him as saying.

"Today we came here all the way to protest against central govt. Yesterday PM visited Andhra Pradesh, Guntur one day before the dharna. What is the need, I am asking," he said.

"PM did not follow 'raj dharma' in case of Andhra Pradesh as his govt denied state special status," Chandrababu said.

Attending the same event Rahul Gandhi also attacked PM Modi.

" I stand with the people of Andhra Pradesh. What kind of a PM is he? He did not fulfill the commitment made to the people of Andhra Pradesh. Mr Modi, tells a lie wherever he goes. He has got no credibility left," said Gandhi.

Gandhi also used the same occasion to attack PM Modi on Rafale deal.

"Every defence deal has an anti-corruption clause. The Hindu has reported that the PM removed the anti-corruption clause. It is clear that the PM facilitated loot," he stressed.

Naidu began his daylong hunger strike at Andhra Pradesh Bhawan here on Monday. His hunger strike is against the central government over the issue of special status to Andhra Pradesh.

He is also pressing for the fulfilment of other commitments made by the Centre at the time of state's bifurcation.

After paying tributes to Mahatma Gandhi at Raj Ghat, Naidu began the 'Dharma Porata Deeksha' at the Andhra Pradesh Bhavan at 8 a.m.

On February 12, he will also submit a memorandum to President Ram Nath Kovind.

The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief is likely to be joined by his cabinet colleagues, MPs, state legislators, and leaders of students and employees groups and mass organisations.

Leaders of various non-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) parties are likely to visit the Andhra Bhavan to express their solidarity with Naidu, the Chief Minister's Office said.

A large number of protesters from Andhra Pradesh has already reached the national capital. The state government hired two special trains to ferry people to Delhi.

So far, the Chief Minister has participated in 'Dharma Porata Deeksha' in 11 districts of Andhra Pradesh.
