The Andhra Pradesh Assembly on Tuesday adopted a resolution denouncing the attitude of the Centre towards implementation of the AP Reorganisation Act and its promises.
"Referring to BJP leaders' statements that funds for various development works and schemes were coming from the centre, the Chief Minister said that those funds came from people's money".
"That is not your money or our money".
Naidu said that he recalled Modi's speech that "the Congress killed the mother (Andhra Pradesh) by delivering a baby (Telangana)".

But if state can be divided on the basis of sentiment, why can't special category status be given based on the same sentiment?"
However, he was quick to add that there is no such thing as centre's money and states' money and the revenue generated belonged to people of India.
He, however, had promised Andhra Pradesh funds equivalent to what a special category state receives and said his government was committed to meeting all promises made to Andhra Pradesh at the time of carving out Telengana.
