New Delhi | Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday and sought the Union government's support for crucial proposals for the state's development.

Naidu, whose Telugu Desam Party (TDP) is a vital partner in the BJP-led NDA government, sought enhanced assistance for Andhra Pradesh if the special category status cannot be granted to the state, sources said.

The TDP chief, who is on a two-day visit to the national capital, also held talks with Union Ministers Nitin Gadkari and Piyush Goyal on state-specific issues.

Sources indicated that Naidu is scheduled to meet several other Union ministers, including Home Minister Amit Shah, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, and Health Minister J P Nadda.

The Andhra Pradesh chief minister's Delhi visit is seen as crucial for securing Central support for the state's development following its bifurcation in 2014.
