Chandra Babu Naidu exceeded the seven minute slot after which Rajnath Singh interrupted his speech. "My state is very special with enough problems. I need more time" replied Chandra Babu and continued his speech. As expected Chandra Babu demanded special status for Andhra Pradesh which has been ignored by the Centre. He even narrated the issues of Polavaram project and the reimbursement of Rs 1892 crores which is yet to be received by the state. Babu opposed the use of socio economic caste census (SECC) for Ayushman Bharat scheme.
