Chandrababu Naidu Meets Arvind Kejriwal, Seeks Support For No-Confidence Vote

Special status to Andhra: TDP MP Sivaprasad sports 'Parashurama' look

The BJP's attack comes after Naidu met several opposition leaders on Tuesday in Delhi and accused the ruling party at the centre of playing with emotions of five crore people of Andhra Pradesh. Apart from meeting opposition leaders like Sharad Pawar, Derek O'Brien, Farooq Abdullah, and Jyotiraditya Scindia, Naidu also met BJP leaders Murli Manohar Joshi, Hema Malini and others from the NDA. "This isn't the correct approach", CM Naidu added. He has met leaders from the Congress and NDA allies. Akali Dal leader Naresh Gujral also met him briefly. I am totally convinced that the present government is doing injustice for Andhra Pradesh and it is not acceptable.

While floor leaders of nearly all Opposition parties met Mr Naidu in the Central Hall of Parliament, no leader of effect from the ruling BJP or bitter rival YSR Congress called on him. "Ours was a pre-election alliance and it was a collective mandate that we got", he said.

Pointing out the promise made by the government regarding the new railway zone formation, he said that despite the neighbouring State of Odisha not having any objection, it has not been implemented yet. You don't like Andhra Pradesh or do you see Telugu people, Andhra Pradesh people as very incompetent?

The senior BJP leader listed a series of central projects for Andhra Pradesh and said party chief Amit Shah, in his recent letter to Naidu, had reminded him that PM Modi has gone beyond what was stipulated in the bifurcation act.

Naidu has tried to give the impression that he is meeting the Opposition leaders to mobilise support for the no-confidence motion pending in Parliament, but the menu on the talking table included the contour of evolving Opposition unity. While remaining non-committal about his plans for 2019, Naidu said the TDP had always played an instrumental role in national politics.

He said Modi had also assured a new capital for the State which would be better than Delhi, and had advised Naidu to visit Astana, the capital city of Kazakhstan. "Then why not to Andhra Pradesh?" he asked.

It is Naidu's first visit to Delhi after parting ways with the Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA government.

"In democracy, the parties are free to take their own call but the BJP is not in habbit of ditching friends".

Subsequently, the BJP refuted Naidu's charges and ridiculed him for his attempts to seek support from the Opposition. "Our leader will not venture out on Tuesday to meet leaders, including Congress president Rahul Gandhi or Sonia Gandhi".
