Srinagar: Chandrababu Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party Friday withdrew support from the NDA government over it’s refusal to grant special category status to Andhra Pradesh. Naidu took the decision in an emergency teleconference with party politburo members and MPs this morning, the Indian Express reported on Friday.
As per the report the move follows the resignation of two of the TDP’s ministers from the Union Cabinet on March 8. At the time, the TDP had not revealed its mind on quitting the coalition altogether.
Hours after the development in Amravati, TDP leader Thota Narasimham moved a no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha today. The no-confidence motion is against injustice meted out to the state, an official communique from the party said.
