The Andhra Pradesh government today said it would file a counter affidavit in Supreme Court against the "misleading" one filed by the Centre on the implementation of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014.
Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu hit out at the centre and accused it of "betraying" the people of Andhra Pradesh.
"The Centre's claim that special category status could not be granted is totally unjustified," he said, addressing a public meeting here this afternoon.
"It's ridiculous that the Centre has claimed to have done everything mentioned in the Reorganisation Act," he said.
He alleged that the Centre "deliberately" gave false information to the Supreme Court.
"We will file a counter to it," the minister said.
