Arun Jaitley press meet over AP budget session
Union minister Arun Jaitley has said that the Centre is still willing to give Andhra Pradesh (AP) a special package that is monetarily equivalent to Special Category Status. At a press meet, he explained how only North Eastern states earned the special category status and how it has been made redundant by the 14 Finance Commission. He said that the ball is now in the state court, whether it wants the funds in 90:10 ratio, from outside sources or through NABARD. He even clarified about fiscal deficit and what the Centre suggests to do about it.
