As we know after Telangana divided from Andhra Pradesh state, this has affected the economy of AP widely. There is a lot of deficit and no metro city in the state. This led to a lot of problems like no industries which can provide employment for the youth as all the Development has happened in Hyderabad and all the major companies are established in Hyderabad. 

During the bifurcation, the ruling government Congress and the Opposition BJP during bifurcation gave promise and hope for AP people about Special Status. But as time passed, the present CM Nara Chandra Babu Naidu garu got convinced by the ruling government which is BJP about the special packages for the state. 

So let's see the difference between Special Status and Special Package:
