NATA Members Hand over Representation Letter to Union Minister
Members of NATA Australia recently met the Hon Union Minister Jagat Prakash Nadda, Government of India, during Indian High commissioner's get together and handed over him a letter. The letter addressed to Jagat Prakash said, "requests your kind attention to provide Indian Government financial assistance to the financially crippled Indian State ‘Andhra Pradesh’ for the all-round development. Following the state bifurcation in 2014 and necessary assistance required to state (as per the bifurcation fund allocations) is essential to compete with the already developed neighbouring states."
The current political leadership led by Hon. Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu helping the state in the development pathway due to his experience and innovation, however, without necessary central assistance, it will become difficult path to achieve the all-round development.
The latest Indian budget allocation of funds to Andhra Pradesh shows the negligence of Indian Government and provided an opportunity to voice the secondary treatment of Southern states including Andhra Pradesh. Navya Andhra Telugu Association of Australia anguishes the developments in India and worried the unity of India as the South India separation from India may emerge soon.
Andhra’s and Telugu speaking people, in general, are the largest populations not only in Andhra Pradesh spread across all over India and globally in all countries speaks multiple languages.
