The matter is not just about a special status, it is about ensuring political accountability. TDP leaders say its support to the no-trust vote is in keeping with the interests of the State and "also to expose the double-game being played by the YSRC and the BJP".
While the Communist Party of India (CPI) extended their support for the no-confidence motion, Shiv Sena said that they would neither support the Government nor the Opposition but would abstain. As his party readies to move a no-confidence motion in Parliament, Naidu was addressing minority wing members in Andhra Pradesh on Monday.
After quitting NDA and moving for No Confidence Motion, Muslim community in Andhra Pradesh has welcomed Naidu's decision to part ways with BJP.
Chandrababu too gave the sudden back stop on to him for the same allegations. "They are trying to weaken the state", he said.
In his remaks, Kalyan stated that his party's "honeymoon with the TDP is over" and questioned the ruling party's commitment towards the demand for special category status (SCS) for AP.
Claiming that he had joined the BJP-led NDA for the state's interests, he said that his party pulled out of government and exited the alliance as it had failed to deliver on the promises made to the state. The TDP has become the latest ally to get out of the NDA. Some smaller parties in the alliance have also moved out of the NDA in Maharashtra and Bihar. On the jobs, prices of essential goods and cost of living front, which touch people's daily lives, the Modi government's performance has not been as extraordinary as his promises had seemed to be in 2014.
