Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the 17th of this month and the yellow media is saying that it is to demand special status for Andhra Pradesh. But the real reason is otherwise say Party insiders.
Apparently, the visit has nothing to do with special status. It is to come to an understanding over the Rajya Sabha seats.
Naidu wants to know whether Sujana Chowdary will be continued with in the Union government failing which the TDP would not want to nominate him to Rajya Sabha. Instead, if the BJP is willing, they would send Yanamala Ramakrishnudu to Rajya Sabha and ask for a cabinet berth for him.
Besides, the BJP was offered one Rajya Sabha seat by the TDP. Nirmala Seetharaman is the BJP Rajya Sabha member from AP. But the BJP have not sent any proposal asking for renomination of any of its members from AP again. This has Naidu a bit worried. Hence, the Delhi visit to clear all these apprehensions.
Special status is just to keep the public happy.
