AP CM Chandrababu Naidu took to Twitter to respond on the statement issued by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. 'Union Minister says Funds can't be offered based on Sentiment. He need to remind the fact that Telangana Statehood was granted based on Sentiment alone,' he wrote.
Telangana IT Minister K Taraka Rao reacted on the Tweet of AP Chief Minister in a hard-hitting manner. 'Sir, with all due respect we, the people of Telangana never flip-flopped in our demand for statehood. Never ever settled for any package even when many were offered. You can fight for your rights but do not belittle and undermine the struggle & sacrifices of people of Telangana,' he advised.
Reaction from KTR might have certainly made Chandrababu Naidu speechless. Why because, Nobody would differ with the views expressed by the IT Minister. Had if KCR or Telangana People accepted the lucrative packages offered by Centre, Statehood wouldn't have been possible even by now. Similarly, Centre might have granted Special Status at least by now had if Chandrababu Naidu fought for it sincerely instead of taking the side track.
