NEW DELHI: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu today met Prime Minister Narendra Modi amid stepped up demand for special category status to the state.

According to Andhra Pradesh special representative K Rama Mohana Rao, Naidu discussed various "pending" issues with the Prime Minister.

"The chief minister discussed several pending issues in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, including educational institutions, Polavaram project and construction of new capital city for the state, with the Prime Minister," Rao told PTI here.

On the demand for special category status for Andhra Pradesh, he said that necessary amendments should be brought to fulfil the election promises made by both BJP and TDP to the people.

Rao said Naidu has invited the Prime Minister to lay the foundation stone for the new capital city which is being constructed in Amravati.

"The foundation stone laying ceremony will be held on October 22 for which the Prime Minister is being invited," he said.

It may be recalled that leader of opposition in Andhra Pradesh and YSRCP chief Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy staged a dharna in Delhi about a fortnight ago demanding that the central government grant special category status to Andhra Pradesh.

Reddy had also alleged that the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister has failed to get the crucial special category for the state which is important for its growth.
