TDP upset with Budget, but won't snap ties

This was indicated by Andhra Pradesh chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu at a meeting of the party's coordination committee on Friday, the sources said. "We will fulfil all that has been promised to the people of Andhra Pradesh". "The CM has issued some guidelines to party MPs on how to bring to the Centre's attention to the state, including protests in Parliament". He said Desam would raise the state's demands in Parliament if required.

With the cash-rich Hyderabad going to Telangana after bifurcation, TDP leaders, meanwhile, believe that Andhra Pradesh requires extra support from the Centre till the state's revenue deficit comes down and its economy gets up and running.

Days after the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) expressed "disappointment" with the Budget+, the party on Sunday said it will not break its alliance with the BJP-led NDA, reported PTI. He asked Chandrababu Naidu to not to take tough decisions.

During Sunday's meeting, the budget and no allocations to Andhra Pradesh were discussed, Chowdary told media.

Akali Dal said TDP is justified in its demands and alleged that it is the Prime Minister himself who is behind the broken promises for reasons best known to BJP.

Addressing the party leaders from Kurnool Assembly segment in a polling booth-level meeting here, Mr. Veerraju charged Mr. Naidu with "ousting a great leader (N.T. Rama Rao) for power".

Alleging that the central government has been tight-fisted, even after promising help to fund capital Amaravati and Polavaram, the TDP had been in a bitter relation with its ally BJP since Naidu took charge as Chief Minister, four years ago.

The TDP is not parting ways with the BJP, for now.

According to a party MP, TDP leaders were in favour of snapping ties with the BJP-led NDA, but Naidu overruled them.

The TDPis the NDA's third largest constituent with 16 members in the Lok Sabha but its pulling out of the alliance will have no bearing on the Modi government. "If the BJP does not want to continue alliance then the TDP will on its own", Naidu had said.
