#APReorgAct Fate of Andhra Pradesh

The fate of  Andhra Pradesh is literally in doldrums. It feels sad that every political party is indulging in their own theatrics rather than fighting for good of the state.

The problem with the promises made to the state during its bifurcation in 2014 was that not all were actually promised legally. There are 3 different kinds of promises that Central Govt made to AP State government.

  1. Incorporated in Ap Reorg act and said “Will Do”.
  2. Incorporated in AP Reorg act and said “ Might do”.
  3. Promises made orally in Parliament but not incorporated in the act and BJP given promises during Election campaign of 2014.

As one can understand by now, 2 and 3 cannot be fought legally and no body can be held accountable.

Coming to 1, the act is still vaguely written which can be interpreted in different ways.Revenue deficit is something which state govt and Central govt have to decide. AP govt used this liberty and made the number huge. No detailed technical logic is included in the act.

Institutes of National importance like NIT, AIIMS, IIM , Petroleum University – They are started just for namesake. No proper funds. Act only mentions Central govt will support. Whatever the support, it can be technically a support.

Funds to Capital city – Central govt is giving some which is not sufficient.

The confusion arises from

  1. Lack of proper detailing in AP Reorg act
  2. Lack of understanding that all promises were actually not made .
  3. Political game plan by both TDP and BJP to get stronghold in AP.

That is why, so many committees are required to actually assess what was promised and how much. A classic case of how public policy can be misused for political gains.

Pawan Kalyan has initiated a Joint Fact Finding Committee with esteemed people like Dr Jayaprakash Narayan and others to first assess the kind of promises made and what Central Govt owes to state.

The report is at https://twitter.com/Loksatta_Party/status/969959604162519046 and totals that around 74000 crores need to be disbursed by Centre to State Government.

Dr JP is now on second phase of more detailed analysis of the acts with more information available and would be coming up with a report in coming weeks.
