Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, N Chandrababu Naidu, has announced that the party is ready to move a no-confidence motion against the PM Narendra Modi government. This movement will have the support of other parties to get intended justice for the state, Andhra. However, he said such a move will be the “last resort”.
As per the sources, Naidu is planning to summon a meeting for all parties to discuss ways to build pressure on the Centre to secure the state’s deserving and rightful due.
The amicable ties between the BJP and TDP came under severe shear when the latter accused the Centre of making scanty allocations for Andhra Pradesh in the Union Budget 2018-19.
“But a no-confidence motion should be the last resort. We will continue our fight for justice to Andhra Pradesh. If that doesn’t happen, we will muster support from other parties and move a no-trust motion,” the TDP president announced at meeting in Vijayawada.
CM further said that “The Centre did nothing for us in the last four years. As chief minister, I will not tolerate if injustice is done to people. Whether the Centre will help us with a special category status or a special economic package is up to them”.
On the other hand, YSRCP president YS Jaganmohan Reddy announced that his party would move the no-trust motion if the TDP did not do so. Naidu had accused Jagan of trying to gain an “upper hand” to corner the TDP on the special category status issue. “Without understanding parliamentary procedures and traditions, Jagan wants to show he took an upper hand and cornered the TDP and the government. What is that you cornered? People are watching everything,” he said.
