Eventually all BJP allies will walk out of NDA: Shiv Sena after TDP pulls out of Union Cabinet

Mumbai, Mar 8 (Zee News): BJP's estranged ally Shiv Sena has now taken a dig at the saffron party after the N Chandrababu-led Naidu TDP decided to pull out its ministers from the Narendra Modi government over its refusal to grant a special status to his state Andhra Pradesh.

''Shiv Sena had expected this. Other parties have walked out of NDA too','' Sanjay Raut, a senior leader of the Uddhav Thackeray-led party said.

Slamming the BJP for not respecting ties with its allies, Raut said, ''Allies no longer have good relations with BJP. Gradually their grudges will spill out and eventually they'll walk out of the alliance.''

Before Raut, another Shiv Sena MP Arvind Sawant had too made similar statements.

"The BJP doesn't respect its allies. TDP is realising it now. We have been saying so for a very long time. BJP only says Sabka Saath but while deciding policies there is no Sabka Saath. They should take decisions unanimously by consulting all but they don't do that," Sawant had said.

In a related development, the Congress attempted to reach out to the TDP and extended support to its demand for special category status for Andhra Pradesh.

Congress Rajya Sabha MP Renuka Chaudhary said, "The so-called ally (BJP) has gone back on their promise. This is exactly we expected. These people will never stand by their allies. It is a good thing that they (TDP) have now realised the real nature of them (BJP)."

She added that Telugu people are very humble people and they gave TDP a long rope.

"It is for them (TDP) now (to decide) whether they want to hang with it or fight," Chaudhary said.

The reactions came hours after the N Chandrababu Naidu-led party announced its decision to pull out of the Centre over its refusal to grant Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh.

TDP chief and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu had announced on Wednesday that the two TDP ministers - P Ashok Gajapathi Raju (Civil Aviation) and YS Chowdary (Minister of State for Science and Technology) - will tender their resignations on Thursday.

Addressing a press briefing, Naidu alleged that the Centre has done a huge injustice to the state.

The TDP is the second-largest party after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

In the Lok Sabha, the TDP has 16 members and six in the Rajya Sabha.

It is the first pre-poll partner of the BJP to pull out of the Modi government after being part of it for nearly four years.

His announcement came hours after Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in New Delhi told the media that granting of special status to Andhra Pradesh was not possible after the 14th Finance Commission recommendations.

Jaitley did not make any new commitment except for reiterating that the Centre had extended all possible help to the bifurcated state.

Granting special category status was a promise made by the previous UPA government at the time of bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh and creation of Telangana, which all the parties in the state are seeking now.

Naidu said a decision on TDP's continuation in the NDA would be decided after talking party-to-party (BJP and TDP). "This (quitting the cabinet) is the first step," he said.

"They (the Centre) are predetermined not to help the state. In the interest of our state, we have taken the decision," he said. I tried to inform the PM for courtesy's sake. But, he did not come online. My OSD informed the PM's OSD."

The drastic decision of the TDP may not have come as a shock to the BJP, which had earlier conveyed to its two ministers in the Andhra Pradesh cabinet to be ready to quit any moment.

Accordingly, Dr Kamineni Srinivas (Medical and Health) and P Manikyala Rao (Endowments) will quit the Naidu cabinet on Thursday, hours before the budget presentation by Finance Minister Y Ramakrishnudu in the state assembly.

Naidu earlier held consultations with the party's MPs, ministers and important leaders before taking the decision and making it public.

The MPs, including the two ministers, expressed a unanimous opinion that Jaitley's statement on the demands of Andhra Pradesh was ''disappointing and discouraging.''

All parties in the state, including the ruling TDP and the main opposition YSR Congress Party, have been agitating in Delhi demanding grant of special status.

Agitations are also going on across the state.

Naidu said at the time of making the alliance, the BJP had said it backed the demand for grant of special category status for Andhra Pradesh but now it was singing a different tune.

He said the promises on statehood and other financial demands of the state have not been honoured by the BJP and he could not make any compromise on the state's interest.

"TDP is not for power but for self-respect. We decided there is no point in continuing in the government," he added.

Naidu said Jaitley's comments suggest that Andhra Pradesh is asking for too much.

He also slammed the Finance Minister for saying "sentiments will not decide the quantum of funds".

He said he made 29 trips to Delhi, met the Prime Minister and other ministers and tried to do his best to do justice for the state. "I am not angry with anybody," he added.

    One shouldn't forget that, this is the same political party who instigated violence against the Mangalorean's with a slogan"Bajao Pungi Bhago Lungi". The Violence was not only against HIndus, it was against all Mangalorean's.

    I din't comment because i love BJP, I comment, because I'm a proud Mangalorean and i hate Shiv Sena and will always.

    Let TDP walkout from NDA.
    Their demand is illogical one,against to "sabka saath, sabka vikaas."
    Under able leadership of Mr Modi its not tough job for him to bring his party to power by 2019 with absolute majority.
    Some of congi's may not like this.

    Hallo Hallo.

    Please listen.

    The Ruling party is weakening, losing popularity etc...

    ...But then where is the Opposition? It's leader..?

    RaGa ? You all think?

    I was the first to write here about the 'FATE' that awaited if Congress projected

    him as a leader. Did not listen!

    Now the result is....there is nothing to stop the ruling party....

    Keep fingers crossed but Karnataka will surely be a 'KICHADI' combination.

    Rajasthan, MP still faltering for no leader has been announced.

    In short with help from RaGa ruling party will again win...

    Instead of just blaming better look into the facts
    When Andra Pradesh bifurcation Bill was passed by earlier UPA Govt no special status was promised to Andhra
    Instead when NDA came to power in May 2014 special Polavaram Ordinance was passed in July 2014 through which Andhra got 7 villages from kammam district of Telangana and also full cost of the Polavarum project .This is additional benifit Naidu got from BJP Govt
    Central govt has been releasing funds for Polavarum Porject .But Power and Financial hunger of Naidu is probably very big which no body can fulfill
    Or there should be some local reasons which he doesnt want to say

    If Andhra 's pride(get honourable statehood) has to be retained .Then at present YSR congress and TDP should be united.This will weaken BJP .If Rahulji has promised for the statehood ,he will do it.Because he is a man of his words.Chanakya politics must be applied in AP.
    Sameway shiv sena should ally Congress.For Brahut Marata kingdom.Which BJP will never allow as it ll destabilise them .Congress can take advantage of this.
    Rajasthan have already decided Mr Pilot in their favor ,there is no question of any shuffles.MP CM chauhan is also getting bashed by the locals, Scindia is a versatile person.He is well spoken both Hindi and English.
    In South and west India ,congress needs to take all Advantage of this.

    How can BJP honour a promise made by the UPA to Andhra Government during bifurcation of the state. It is against their principles!. If they honour it then they will be following the UPA which they call corrupt . And who is Chandrababu Naidu in the game of Numbers when BJP can win independently. It is next exit of Naidu and CR Rao from CM post
