AP Special Status 'Litmus Test' For TDP

The fight against the center for special status for AP has intensified as YSRCP leader YS Jagan and Jana Sena Chief Pawan Kaylan called for No-Confidence motion against the BJP in the parliament. This has become a hot topic in the Andhra Politics. While speaking at a rally in Prakasam district on Sunday, YSRCP Chief Jagan Mohan Reddy said that his party is ready for a no-confidence motion on the NDA government at the Center for special status. This is in reply to Jana Sena Chief Pawan Kalyan’s call to all parties to align and fight against the Modi Sarkar for AP special status.
Pawan Kalyan advised that TDP and YSCRP  to set aside differences and join hands to  fight for the cause of Telugu people. Detailing the motion, Pawan Kalyan said,  “The YSR Congress can approach the Secretary General of Lok Sabha immediately. The party should move the motion by March 4, so that the issue will come up for debate in the House on March 5”.
This has put TDP in a tight situation as it doesnot want to deter relationship with BJP. TDP chief and Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu refuted that YSRCP leader, Jagan Mohan Reddy is waiting for TDP to quit NDA so that they can join the alliance with BJP. He termed that s ‘no-confidence motion’ is only a tactic to reach that goal.
Naidu  said that TDP is making all efforts to convince BJP-led Centre to fulfill the promises made as per the AP Reorganisation Act. He said, “no-confidence motion has no meaning. We do not have a majority, so we will lose anyway. If at all we bring no-confidence motion, we will have to engage other parties and bring everyone together. But Jagan, who does not understand things, is asking us to resign and come out of the Parliament. So if we just walk out of the Parliament, the situation will still not change. We are raising our voice in the Parliament so that the promises which were made on the floor of the same House, are honored. Instead of targeting me, Jagan should question BJP and PM Modi”.
