Senior BJP leader has clarified that there will not be any special status to the state of Andhra Pradesh. Mr. Jaitley said NDA government is determined to fulfil all the promises it made during the passage of AP Reorganisation Act in Parliament and implement the Act thoroughly. He says that they will have to explore the opportunities for which they are working currently and adds that AP will be granted more than what people are expecting now.

We cannot at this stage straight away decide against this recommendation. We will to have explore other alternatives for which we are working, we will give more than what AP would have got under special category status,” Mr Arun Jaitley told media in Delhi.” he said.
