TDP not to break alliance with BJP

Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu can be seen calling on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi

Earlier, Chandrababu asked MPs to fight in Parliament and voice the injustice done to the state.

He added that party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu had not spoken to the Shiv Sena+, a BJP ally which recently chose to go solo in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

Briefing on the decisions taken at the meeting to the media, Union Minister for State Sujana Chowdhury said that priority will be to acquire permissions for the projects which are in pipeline. The alliance of the TDP and the BJP has come under great strain in the aftermath of the Union Budget this year.

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu called the party meeting to decide the next course of action.




TDP President Naidu will hold a meeting of party's Parliamentary Committee in Amaravati and will meet senior MLAs and leaders to review ties with the ruling BJP.

Chowdary pointed out that Andhra was "in a disadvantageous position due to the bifurcation (to create Telangana)".

'The budget allocations are very dissatisfactory and it is for the BJP to explain how it will address this.

"During the 16-minute conversation, the Union home minister told the AP CM he was calling at the behest of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP national president Amit Shah would also talk to him soon". He said that the TDP MPs would demand a special package for AP, new railway zone and funds for Polavaram project. Deficit finance and schemes related to development of Amaravati as the state capital are also on the NDA partner's wish list. "We will fulfil all that has been promised to the people of Andhra Pradesh". They (the Centre) have done something, but much more needs to be done. "We will discuss these things in the next two-three days and try to work out a solution", Chowdary added. "We will spell out a staggered strategy at our MPs' meeting tomorrow and, if possible, meet the PM to submit a representation on our demands", the CM is believed to have said, according to a minister who spoke to The Sunday Guardian on Saturday. "If the Centre fails to deliver we will protest inside the house and also outside", the minister said.
