Andhra Pradesh got a raw deal in the railway budget and disappointed the people to a large extent as it gave very little to the state, BJP leader and former Union minister of state for railways Bandaru Dattatreya said at a press conference here on Tuesday. “It is a shame that nine Union ministers, including Union minister of state for railways Kotla Surya Prakash Reddy, and 33 MPs belonging to the ruling party from the state as well as chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy failed to bring any new major projects or the new trains or railway lines,” Dattatreya said. Kiran Reddy and Surya Prakash Reddy did not even bother to hold a meeting with MPs whereas the chief ministers of other states hold such meetings with their MPs three months in advance, he said.

The budget was prepared keeping the general elections in mind, he said, adding that it is ridiculous to announce new works, while the works announced earlier had not been taken up.
