New Delhi, Feb 11 (IBNS): Demanding for a special category status category for his Andhra Pradesh, state CM N Chandrababu Naidu came down to New Delhi to start his day-long hunger strike here on Monday.

Naidu is sitting on a day-long fast at Andhra Bhavan in the national capital.

Naidu-led Telugu Desam Party (TDP) had pulled out of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in March last year over the issue of granting special status to Andhra Pradesh.

The CM tweeted: "Live from my day-long hunger strike against the central government, New Delhi. #DharmaPorataDeeksha #APDemandsJust."

Modi Attacks Naidu during Sunday rally:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday slammed Chandrababu Naidu during his address at Guntur rally and said the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister is creating lots of wealth for himself and his son while the state suffers.

Speaking at the rally, the PM launched a fierce attack on Naidu and said: "One must admire Chandrababu Naidu Garu’s honesty. He says he is a wealth creator! He’s obviously creating lots of wealth for him and his son while AP suffers. We are patriotic Indians...we are only thinking about the nation. Creating wealth is never on our minds."

Modi said the people of Andhra Pradesh have seen the true colours of Chandrababu Naidu.

He said: "Chandrababu Naidu Garu keeps saying he is senior to Modi, he is senior to Modi. Of course he is...Know how!"

"My ‘senior’ in politics, Shri Chandrababu Naidu obviously has lots to hide. Else why won’t he give an account of what his miserable Government has done for Andhra Pradesh," said he.

Modi claimed that the Centre has left no stone unturned for the state’s progress but the priorities of the TDP are different.

Taking a dig at TDP leaders for protesting against his visit to the state, Modi said: "I thank the TDP cadre and their leader for wishing what every patriotic Indian also wishes- that Modi goes back to Delhi and once again becomes the Prime Minister! I guess they have read the writing on the wall!"
