NEW DELHI: The Congress Thursday said that the TDP’s decision to pull out of the NDA government at the Centre was “too little, too late” as it “has done nothing” to protect the interests of Andhra Pradesh in the past four years.
This is too little and too late. The TDP has been an ally of the BJP for four years now and has done nothing to protect the interests of Andhra Pradesh,” senior Congress leader from Andhra Pradesh and former union minister M M Pallam Raju said.
His remarks came soon after Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu, in a late night press conference, announced that his party’s two central ministers — Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju and Minister of State for Science and Technology Y S Chowdary — would resign from the government tomorrow.
Raju said the TDP has “abandoned” the interests of the state and that this is political posturing in view of the prevailing public mood.
