After Shiv Sena will Telugu Desam too quit the BJP-led NDA

After Shiv Sena will Telugu Desam too quit the BJP-led NDA

However, the TDP expressed "serious" displeasure over the Union Budget 2018 and one of the party MP said they will declare a "war" against the BJP.

Naidu called up Thackeray and said that the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) was sore over the "stepmotherly" treatment meted out by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to its regional friends.

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.

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. "Though gross injustice was done to Andhra on account of bifurcation, I aligned with the only because having good relations with the Centre could undo the injustice", Naidu apparently told the TDP leaders. We will raise the issue in Parliament. Naidu is suspicious of the BJP cosying up to his political rival YS Jaganmohan Reddy, president of the YSR Congress Party, who told a national TV channel a few days ago that his party was not averse to forging an alliance with the saffron party.

TDP is presently an ally of BJP in the NDA government. There is no respect for the TDP MPs in NDA, though we are alliance partners.

This strategy would be announced after a meeting of TDP Parliamentary Party at the CM's official residence at Amaravati on Sunday. And also said they are not satisfied with the budget allocated to Andhra state. "As and when it is required, the chief minister and party chief will take a decision appropriately". "Our CM had no conversation with Shiv Sena or anyone else", he added.

The Union Minister asked the Chief Minister not to take any hasty decision.

"We are more interested in development of the state and welfare of people and whatever state reorganization act promises must be fulfilled. 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.
