New Delhi: Days after the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) pulled out of union cabinet in protest against BJP-lead Central government’s unfair economic policies towards Andhra Pradesh in the 2018 Union Budget. The party has decided to break its alliance with Bhartiya Janata Party. Further it has decided to support the YSR Congress Party’s no-confidence motion in Parliament tomorrow.
As reported by the media sources TDP chief and Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh N Chandrababu Naidu has called a politburo meeting Friday to take a final call on the issue of exiting from the NDA. A majority of the members including MPs, MLAs and senior leaders have already told Naidu to quit NDA, the sources added.
“This is the final option. The CM is livid that instead of resolving issues faced by the state, the BJP is indulging in dirty politics that it played in Tamil Nadu,’’ TDP leader Kambhampati Rammohan Rao purportedly said.
It is said that on Thursday in a teleconference with his MPs, Naidu accused the BJP and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi of using YSR Congress Party and actor K Pavan Kalyan’s Jena Sena Party to target him and the TDP. N Chandrababu Naidu reportedly told the MPs that Narendra Modi was applying the same strategy that was used in Tamil Nadu where BJP supported OPS faction against EPS in the AIADMK.
“Instead of addressing the issues raised by the state such as allocating special funds, bridging revenue gap or special category status as promised in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014, Indian PM Modi was using the Tamil Nadu template to pit YSRCP and Jena Sena against TDP.”
Furthermore, N Chandrababu Naidu dubbed the Uttar Pradesh and Bihar bypoll results on Wednesday as anti-incumbency against against the BJP and Narendra Modi.
On March 8, the TDP withdrew its two ministers from the Union Cabinet, accusing the BJP of reneging on its promises to give special category status to Andhra Pradesh.
