This poses a big question on the country’s federal structure,” said Kejriwal at the Andhra Bhavan here where the Telugu Desam Party President is on fast asking the Centre to give special category status and fulfil other commitments made in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014.
“The PM at least thrice publicly declared he would give special status to Andhra. He is world famous for lying. Whatever he says, he never fulfills. Even (BJP chief) Amit Shah says that whatever they say is nothing but ‘jumla’ (fake promise),” he said.
Kejriwal added that Modi had pledged to give special status to Andhra Pradesh at the Tirupati temple, he said: “A person who backs out on his word given in front of god cannot be trusted.”
