HYDERABAD: At a meeting Andhra Pradesh Chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu held with MPs from the state here on Sunday,  a list of 35 demands was circulated to MPs so as to get the Centre’s help on various issues for the development of AP.

Sources said during the meeting, several MPs felt the Telangana government was taking steps to take back the government lands allotted to Andhra industrialists by the previous governments, in a vindictive manner. They also expressed their displeasure over the way the T-government is undertaking demolition of structures.

Emerging from the meeting, Union Civil Aviation Minister P Ashok Gajapathi Raju, Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu and AP government representative in Delhi Kambhampati Ramamohana Rao told reporters that the meeting was aimed at requesting the MPs to exert collective pressure on the Centre to bail AP out of the grave financial crisis.

Stating that all the MPs of AP, including Congress Rajya Sabha members, took part in the meeting except the members of YSRC, Ramakrishnudu came down on the YSRC MPs for not attending the meeting.
