Chandrababu Naidu stated that Andhra Pradesh is not competing with Telangana or any other Indian state but only with reputed cities worldwide. He wants to make our state the best by replicating the best practices that other countries have tried and tested. He further stated that Telangana and Andhra Pradesh have no choice but to depend on each other due to economic reasons. Telangana needs access to the Vizag port and our state needs access to Hyderabad.
