After Shiv Sena, will Telugu Desam too quit the BJP-led NDA?

Yanamala reportedly told Naidu during the meeting of ministers held on Thursday that it would not be right to take any hasty decision on alliance and suggested that the party should give some more time to do justice to the state.

"The TDP will not break its alliance with the BJP-led NDA", Party leader and Union minister Y S Chowdary said after a meeting of party MPs and senior leaders with Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu here this afternoon.

"We are not happy with the BJP Budget, we are not happy with what was allotted to Andhra Pradesh", TDP MP P Ravindra Babu told ANI before the meeting. The two parties had fought the 2014 elections in alliance where the TDP had emerged as the second largest party in the NDA in terms of seats won.

The TDP said it was "disappointed" that the FM did not address the state's needs but the party won't opt out of the alliance yet. "We will also raise the matter in the Parliament, if it is needed.".

Chandrababu Naidu-led Telugu Desam Party (TDP) has chose to remain in the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance for now. The TDP sources said that according to Naidu, the by-poll results are a clear example that people will be unsparing if governance is not good.

Stating that there will be no compromise on the state's interests, he said the future course of action would be decided by Naidu.

The meeting felt that the Centre ignored the demands for release of funds under special assistance measure announced previous year in lieu of special category status, allocation for Polavaram project and financial assistance for development of state capital Amaravati.

Naidu had met Modi with a list of demands ahead of parliament's budget session. TDP accuse the BJP government at the centre of not giving adequate funds to the state particularly for creation of its new capital, Amaravati.

'Bengaluru, Mumbai and Ahmedabad got a substantial allocation for various projects but none of our projects, including the Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam Metro rail, got anything, a source quoted Naidu as saying.
