TDP alliance in danger? Irked Chandrababu Naidu calls up Uddhav Thackeray

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu

The Telugu Desam Party will not pull out of the NDA "immediately" but, will start cornering the Narendra Modi government inside and outside the Parliament on the raw deal to Andhra Pradesh in the just presented budget.

Naidu noted that compared to the northern states, the budget allocations for the southern states were meagre.

"If the Centre does not concede to our demands, then we will undertake protest both inside and outside Parliament", he added. "CM N Chandrababu Naidu did not speak to Shiv Sena". The hardline Maharashtrian party had announced two weeks ago that it would contest the next Assembly and General elections alone, though it has not yet quit the NDA.

This is part of a staggered agitation Naidu intends to launch and it may culminate in pulling out of the Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA at the Centre a few months later, if things go wrong. He said the TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu also aired such an opinion and if this is accepted in the meeting today than all MPs of TDP woould resign. TDP which is the biggest ally of BJP in the South had openly expressed their displeasure on the budget allocation and put forward ending alliance with BJP is an option before it.

Manchin: Pence's Attacks Are 'Exactly Why Washington Sucks'
It is the first congressional race of the year and in a district won easily by President Donald Trump in 2016. This evening, Pence will speak at a gathering of Republican members of Congress at The Greenbrier resort.

Naidu, who is also the TDP president, said there will be a fight on the injustice done to the state.

Naidu called the "emergency meeting" in Vijaywada upset with the Budget in which he said there was nothing for his state. "We will also raise the matter in the Parliament, if it is needed.". It, however, forged an alliance with the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) headed by former chief minister Neiphiu Rio. "We hope that the BJP will realise that losing a friendly party like the TDP will work against its interests", TDP MP TG Venkatesh said.

There is a 'strong mood among TDP leaders to break away from the alliance with the BJP, the Press Trust of India quoted sources as saying.

The TDP chief has been demanding that New Delhi help it out till the state overcame its revenue deficit and developed at par with the other neighbouring states.
