Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu met his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday to seek support for the Telugu Desam Party’s no-confidence motion against the Centre, NDTV reported.
“The Delhi chief minister said he would offer support to the TDP through members from his party in both Houses of Parliament,” the Telugu Desam Party’s Rajya Sabha MP CM Ramesh told reporters. The Aam Aadmi Party has seven members in Parliament – four in the Lok Sabha and three in the Rajya Sabha.
Naidu on Tuesday had urged regional parties to flag their concerns over the “injustice” by the Centre against states ruled by Opposition parties. He had met several Opposition MPs at Parliament to discuss his party’s demand for special category status for Andhra Pradesh. He said regional parties and the Left have signalled their support for his party’s efforts to bring in the no-confidence motion, which has not been taken up yet because the Lok Sabha has been adjourned every day in the ongoing Budget session.
In March, Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party quit the ruling National Democratic Alliance at the Centre before moving a no-confidence motion against the government.
