₹12477 cr released to AP, says Centre

Go to people Chandrababu Naidu tells leaders

Arun Jaitley's remarks; sentiments can not increase the quantum of funds, during a press meet raised political heat between TDP and BJP both at the Centre and the State. Amid the din in Lok Sabha, Minister of State for Finance Shiv Pratap Shukla introduced The Fugitive Economic Offenders Bill 2018, that seeks to confiscate all assets of absconding fraudsters and loan defaulters for recovering dues from them.

Both Question Hour and Zero Hour were washed out as scores of members from the TDP, Congress, AIADMK, TRS and Trinamool Congress trooped into the Well, forcing speaker Sumitra Mahajan to adjourn the proceedings first for an hour.

The government on Wednesday informed Parliament that a total of Rs 124.76 billion has been released as special assistance to Andhra Pradesh, which includes Rs 25 billion for establishment of the new capital city of the state.

One of the protesting members in the well held a placard which read "Chotta Modi kahan gaya", referring to diamond merchant Nirav Modi, allegedly the key person behind the Rs 12,700 crore fraud at Punjab National Bank.

But Opposition parties wanted a discussion on the bank fraud issue under rule 168/169 that required voting on a resolution. Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has repeatedly pointed to the "unscientific and irrational" manner in which the bifurcation of unified Andhra Pradesh happened amidst the "din of protest" in Parliament.

But the resignations didn't seem to have come as too much of a surprise to BJP.

"The government is agreeable to that and the Chair has also permitted", he said, adding "I don't find any reason for agitation".

The Chief Minister further cried foul and said that Union Minister Piyush Goyal denied an appointment to the TDP MPs and chose to meet YSRCP MPs.

State Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu also told reporters that the TDP has made a decision to "expose" the centre on what it has done or not done to the state - as promised in the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014 - by putting out relevant facts and figures before the people.

Ahluwalia was to make a statement regarding status of implementation of recommendations of the 35th report of Parliamentary Standing Committee on rural development.

Meanwhile, the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party today gave a notice in Rajya Sabha over short duration discussion on sealing drive in Delhi.
