Ahead of the 2019 Elections, BJP offered a golden opportunity for Andhra Pradesh to expose its true colors. Special Category Status promise was included in the BJP Goa Manifesto for 2019 Lok Sabha Polls.

Special Category Status was promised by then PM Manmohan Singh in the floor of the House during bifurcation of United AP. However, NDA Government kept denying justice for Andhra Pradesh with silly excuses such as Finance Commission recommendations & Objections from other states.

Why the Finance Commission recommendations weren't followed for Goa? Are all the Indian States in favour of Special Category Status for Goa? It's high time to expose the double-standards of BJP-led NDA Government.

Political Parties in Andhra Pradesh have been planning to intensify the fight for Special Category Status highlighting this aspect. 'If Goa deserves Special Category Status, why not AP?,' questions Andhrites.
