TDP-NDA split: Amit Shah to meet Andhra BJP leaders today

Hyderabad: BJP national president Amit Shah is likely to review the political situation in Andhra Pradesh after N Chandrababu Naidu-led TDP's exit from the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and chalk out a strategy before the Lok Sabha elections and assembly elections here.

According to reports, the BJP president is likely to hold a meeting with the core group of the party's Andhra Pradesh unit later this evening.

The meeting comes as the BJP finds itself in a tight corner in Andhra Pradesh after the TDP and YSR Congress moved notices for a no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha against the Narendra Modi government.

The current political situation in Andhra Pradesh is of utmost concerns to the BJP since the state sends 25 members to the Lok Sabha and assembly elections are due to be held in 2019.

The BJP has already asserted that the TDP's decision to sever ties with it is a timely opportunity for it to grow in Andhra Pradesh.

'TDP's decision to quit was inevitable after its mischievous propaganda against Centre. People of Andhra Pradesh have now realised that the TDP is resorting to lies to cover up its inept and inert governance. Far from being a threat, TDP's exit is a timely opportunity for the BJP to grow in Andhra Pradesh,' BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao said.

The TDP and the YSR Congress headed by Jagan Mohan Reddy are the two main parties in the state.
