AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said he was ready to move a no-confidence motion against the Narendra Modi government with the support of other parties to get “justice” for the southern state.
However, he said such a move will be the “last resort”.
Naidu had dismissed the demands made by the opposition YSR Congress and Jana Sena to consider bringing a no-trust motion.
TDP sources had said Naidu, who heads the TDP, was planning to convene an all-party meeting soon to discuss ways to build pressure on the Centre to secure the state’s “rightful” due.
But, a no-confidence motion should be the last resort. We will continue our fight for justice to AP. If that doesn’t happen, we will muster support from other parties and move the no-trust motion,” the Telugu Desam Party president announced at a meeting of Madiga Reservation Porata Samiti in Vijayawada.
The TDP is a key constituent from south India in the BJP-led NDA dispensation. Naidu said protecting the interests of the state was of paramount importance for him.
“The Centre did nothing for us in the last four years. As Chief Minister, I will not tolerate if injustice is done to people.
Whether they (the Centre) will help us with a special category status or a special economic package is up to them,” he said.
