Is Telugu Desam party getting out of NDA?The ruling party in the residuary Andhra Pradesh, Telugu Desam, is a constituent of NDA. Two of his MPs are in the central ministry also. The AP Chief Minister is trying hard to overcome the difficulties and make the state a surplus state.
At the time of division, the BJP was in Opposition and they insisted the central government give Special Status to AP. But after elections, BJP has come to power. They maintained that it is not possible to give special status but they will give a special package. Even though the state is in very bad shape the CM against his critics accepted the special package. But the funds are not being released as promised.
The CM supported BJP in Rajya Sabha elections and he has seen that the then Railway minister will get elected as MP from AP. But BJP, in turn, has not at all showing any signs of helping the state. In this year Budget, there are no proper allocations of funds to the state. Now the TDP people very much disappointed and they want to fight out with the central governemnt. With this move, TDP may be going away from BJP.
Do you think is it going to affect the prospects of BJP in southern states.
