Government ally TDP protests in Lok Sabha Lok Sabha adjourns briefly amid protests by TDP members

TDP sources said that at the party's meeting in Amaravati, CM Naidu apparently dissuaded his senior party colleagues from speaking about the fate of the alliance with and dwelt on the Rajasthan by-poll results where the tasted defeat.

Andhra Pradesh Political Parties seems to be resorting to Namesake Protests in Parliament over the Poor Allocations to the state in the Union Budget.

As the ties between TDP and BJP appear to be strained over the centre's allocation of funds to Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has backed Andhra Pradesh state government saying she would support any state which was deprived of funds, similar to West Bengal. "We MPs are ready to resign, but we are bound by the Chief Minister's decision", said Pandula Ravindra Babu TDP MP Amalapuram told ANI.

A senior BJP leader says TDP and Chandrababu will be losers as Polavaram at 58000 crore is centre's head ache and Naidu govt already 27000 crore revenue loss has no resources to complete it.

Chowdhary, on February 1, had warned that the TDP had three options before it, namely, (1) either try and continue the alliance (2) make their MPs resign and (3) simply terminate an association with the BJP and the NDA. He said nearly all of the TDP leaders had favoured snapping of ties with the BJP.

It is evidently clear that the Telugu Desam Party happens to be the BJP's biggest ally in the South.

"Allies including N Chandrababu Naidu and Shiv Sena are upset because they haven't received any accommodation till now".

Instead of putting pressure on the Centre, the TDP chose to stage namesake protests while being in power. It had said that its concerns were of a serious nature and need to be addressed effectively and promptly.

On Friday, member Sanjay Raut said the Gujarat elections were a trailer and the BJP's losses in the Rajasthan by-polls the interval.

The delegation, comprising Union Ministers - P Ashok Gajapathi Raju and YS Chowdary - and MPs - K Ramamohan Naidu, Nimmala Kistappa and Thota Narasimham - met Singh in New Delhi.

To improve his vote share, Naidu is eyeing the sizeable minority vote in the state.

He said that the Centre should immediately address key issues, including the release of funds under the special assistance measure announced a year ago, funds for the Polavaram project, assistance to build new state capital Amaravati and setting up of a railway zone in Visakhapatnam.
