Visakhapatnam: Former Union Minister and BJP leader Daggubati Purandheshwari said the Centre would support Andhra Pradesh in all respects. She said she’s waiting for the announcement on special state status from New Delhi. She also assured that AP will get a new Railway Zone. 

It’s too early to comment before any formal announcement from the Centre. Awarding special category status is not possible due to the report by 14th Finance Commission. Though technically word special status would not be mentioned, the Centre will extend help and support Andhra Pradesh. I am just waiting for the announcement from Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. Railway Zone for AP is almost confirmed.

The NDA government wouldn’t just wash its hands of a mere announcement on financial package, but it’ll stand by its assurance of developing Andra Pradesh on all aspects, said Purandheshwari.
