TDP leaders tell Naidu to reconsider alliance with BJP

Chandrababu Naidu

Since this was the last budget, we expected that the Centre would address to the issues concerning the state.

The assertion comes amid speculation that the ruling party in Andhra Pradesh might rethink its ties with the BJP in view of its disappointment over allocation of funds to the state in the Union Budget.

In 2014 Lok Sabha polls, TDP-BJP alliance had won 18 out of 25 seats.

Naidu chose to "wait and watch" following a telephone call from Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who requested the TDP chief not to take any drastic political call till BJP chief Amit Shah looked into the issues raised by him. "If the Modi Government failed to act in the interest of the State, the situation will be reviewed", said a senior leader. The development came ahead of Naidu's emergency meet with his party leaders to decide on the future his alliance with the BJP.Shah's nervousness emanates from the fact that the Shiv Sena has already announced its intention to go alone in the next parliamentary elections.

"We shall discuss the issues and try to get them resolved".

Naidu is said to be upset with the alliance partner over the poor allocation for the state in the Union Budget, reported ANI.

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

Meanwhile, TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu is learnt to have made a decision to take stock of the daily developments and to interact with his MPs twice a day, even during his scheduled visit to Dubai, beginning February 8.

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.

Responding to the question of the TDP MPs threatening to resign, he said, "We never said that, it is all speculation".

Talking to reporters, the TDP chief said he was adhering to coalition "dharma" by reining in his party leaders from reacting to their statements. It, however, forged an alliance with the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) headed by former chief minister Neiphiu Rio. "Don't hesitate to fight even if suspended", Naidu said to have told MPs.
