TDP to protest state neglect in Parliament

BJP ally TDP Chandrababu Naidu disappointed over budget, calls it “deeply disappointing”

"If the Centre does not concede to our demands, then we will undertake protest both inside and outside Parliament", he added.

The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) will not pull out of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) "immediately" but, will start cornering the Narendra Modi government inside and outside the Parliament on the raw deal handed out to Andhra Pradesh in the recently tabled budget.

Not just the Sena and TDP, some of the BJP's allies in Bihar have also taken to complain that their concerns are being neglected.

Meanwhile, BJP president Amit Shah and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh got in touch with Chandrababu Naidu. In the meantime, we will take the message to the people as to how Andhra Pradesh was completely ignored in the budget, The Times of India quoted Naidu as saying. So CBN and MPs made a decision to voice out in parliament and outside the parliament and express their dissatisfaction on BJP's treatment to AP state. "We never spoke (about snapping ties).it's all speculation", Desam leader and Union minister Y. Satyanarayana Chowdary said after the meeting. He said among the southern states, Andhra Pradesh has the lowest revenues and he had been demanding the Centre to handhold the state till it comes up at par with other states.

TDP is the second major alliance partner of BJP, which is on a war path. In the Parliamentary Board meeting, it was chose to fight for the rights of Andhra Pradesh even if it means stalling the Parliament.

The TDP, incidentally, is not the first NDA ally to have developed a strained relationship with the BJP.

Naidu is upset with the allocation of funds for the state in the Union Budget 2018 despite its request for additional funds.

The lack of funds did had irked Chandrababu Naidu, who was keen to make it a IT hub and attract huge investments to the state. "Don't hesitate to fight even if suspended", Naidu said to have told MPs.

The BJP central leadership has told state leaders to refute the TD's narrative with statistics and mount an aggressive, no holds barred counter attack.
