New Delhi, March 24: Days after Chandrababu Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party snapped ties with the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah wrote a letter to Andhra Pradesh CM and termed his decision unfortunate and unilateral.
In the letter dated March 23, Shah said,”This decision is both unfortunate as well as unilateral. It’s a decision; I am afraid, will be construed as being guided wholly and solely by political considerations instead of developmental concerns.”
“The Bharatiya Janata Party has been a firm believer in the concept of politics of performance and development for all has been our guiding principle. Andhra Pradesh figures very prominently on our agenda of National Development and it is widely known that Union govt led by PM Modi has left no stone unturned in ensuring the growth and prosperity of AP,” Shah further wrote in the letter.
The TDP exited the BJP-led alliance over the demands to accord ‘special category status’ to Andhra Pradesh and other commitments made at the time of state’s division in 2014.
The party has also moved a no-confidence motion against the Modi government in Lok Sabha, which could not be taken up due to continuous ruckus in the Parliament.
