Amidst widening gap between the Telugu Desam Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party, Union minister of state for science and technology Y S Chowdary alias Sujana Chowdary met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Parliament to convey the growing resentment among the people over the injustice done to Andhra Pradesh in the budget.
According to reports from Delhi, Sujana had a 20-minute meeting with Modi and discussed the issues concerning the promises made in AP Reorganisation and the status of their implementation.
He brought to the notice of the Prime Minister how the TDP had to lose face before the people for not being able to get even a single promise made in the Act, especially with regard to railway zone for Vizag, Dugarajapatnam port and allocations for Amaravati capital.
It is not exactly known how Modi had responded, but Sujana told him that the TDP would be compelled to take a decision on continuing in the NDA, since it is a matter of survival for the party.
He reportedly conveyed AP chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu’s message that the TDP would wait till the completion of the ongoing budget for any justice to be done to the state, before taking any decision on the alliance.
Naidu already told the MPs that a decision would be taken on the TDP and BJP alliance if the Centre fails to take any steps towards the pending issues of AP by March end.
The public anger will reflect in the next elections if the TD continues its alliance with the BJP even after Andhra Pradesh not getting any allocations in the Budget.
