Union Government is seriously considering the proposal of Rs 52,000 crore petroleum package for Andhra Pradesh, after it decided against the Special Category Status. During a meeting organized by Swarna Bharat Trust at Venkatachalam in Nellore district, Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan confirmed that NDA Government has given its approval for the petroleum package worth Rs 52,000 crore. This include setting up of Petroleum University, Expansion of HPCL refinery and Petro-Chemical Complex.
Swarna Bharat Trust was established by Union urban development minister M Venkaiah Naidu to serve the needy people in the rural areas. Venkaiah claimed he always believed service to man is service to god. Seems like, Centre has done enough exercise to pacify the people of AP with the Special Package announcement.
