YSR Congress prepare to move no trust motion in Lok Sabha

Telugu Desam Party (TDP) exited from the Narendra Modi government and moved a No-Confidence motion against it in the Lok Sabha on Friday, but his party BJP said it has the numbers to easily defeat the move.

"We will explain to the people of Andhra Pradesh the things that we have done for them in last four years and things we will do". The TDP said the decision was because of the injustice meted out to the state by not honouring the promise of granting Special Category Status, as mentioned in the AP Reorganization Act.

On Friday, the TDP came out of the NDA coalition, breaking its long-time alliance with the BJP.

Meanwhile, another party of Andhra Pradesh, YSR Congress, a breakaway group of Congress party, has submitted a notice for moving a no-confidence motion against the Modi government for its refusal to accord special category status to the state.

Pushed to the wall as it were, Andhra Pradesh chief minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu chose to pull out his TDP ministers from Modi's Council of Ministers protesting against the injustice done to the state in the wake of the bifurcation of AP in 2014. The TDP left the NDA and thus became cynosure of national politics. This is the last budget of the Union Government to this Lok Sabha.

Once a no-confidence motion is moved in the Lok Sabha, support of at least 50 members is needed to admit the motion, which is then followed by voting. We expected that before the passage of the Finance Bill, necessary modifications will be made to do justice to the people of AP.
