TDP walks out of NDA, week after quitting Narendra Modi Cabinet

New Delhi: In a huge setback for the National Democratic Alliance, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) has decided to quit the alliance. The decision was taken unanimously by the party politburo on Friday morning. The Bharatiya Janata Party and the TDP had been treading on a thin line after the Narendra Modi government did not allocate additional funds for Andhra Pradesh.

CM Chandrababu Naidu led TDP government had been demanding a special status for Andhra Pradesh. However, they claimed that they let down by the Central government. "For four years I have been requesting the Centre but now, only under inevitable circumstances, I started fighting only to secure the state's rights since the PM has meted out injustice," the TDP president had said on Thursday. 

The decision to pull out of the alliance comes after Jaganmohan Reddy-led YSR Congress Party moved a no-confidence motion in Lok Sabha, putting the TDP on the defensive. Thereafter the TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu had said that they may support a no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha against the BJP-led NDA government over the issue of special status.

"I am telling this with pain and agony, 40 years of political experience and as people's word. It is not good to play with the lives of people. If you sincerely move the no-trust motion, we will fully co-operate. If you do it by colluding, we will expose you," the TDP president warned the Jaganmohan Reddy-led party.
