The counter part of another Telugu state Nara Chandrababu Naidu is like yes and no on this decison. He supported Modi, first then called it a hasty decision and then greeted Modi while he was in Tirupathi and said that AP was the first state in digitisation.

They said demonetisation is good.Sales volume in the top eight cities has dropped 9 per cent in 2016 to 244,680 units from 267,960 units in 2015.
