Soon, BJP will be rejected by entire country: Naidu

April 06, 2018 14:52 IST

The Andhra Pradech CM asked party MPs to meet the President after Parliament is adjourned sine die.

Telugu Desam Party president Chandrababu Naidu on Friday asked the party's MPs to intensify their protest for special category status for Andhra Pradesh.

In a tele-conference with TDP MPs, Naidu said, "The BJP is running away by repeatedly adjourning the House for these many days. If Parliament is adjourned sine die, MPs must meet the President. The BJP is acting on the lines of divide and rule."

 

Friday was the last day of Parliament's second part of the budget session.

In Amaravati, the Andhra Pradesh chief minister led a cycle rally of his ministers and TDP legislators protesting the Centre's attitude towards the state, vis-a-vis the implementation of the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014.

"Already people of AP are not accepting the BJP. Soon, there will be a day when the BJP will not be accepted by the entire country," Naidu said in a statement issued by his media cell.

"We will not step back until assurances made in the Rajya Sabha including Special Category Status and provisions of AP Reorganisation Act are fulfilled," he said.

Responding to YSR Congress MPs not taking part in a protest held by his party MPs in the Parliament complex on Thursday, Naidu said it was an example of the party's collusion politics.

"In the past, some natives used to collude with Britishers. In the same way, YSRCP is now colluding with Centre," he said in the statements.

TDP MPs on Thursday protested in Rajya Sabha chamber and refused to leave even after the house was adjourned for the day at around 2.30pm.

The members were in the night around 8.15 pm marshalled out along with the party's Lok Sabha MPs who held protests in the Central Hall in solidarity.

The TDP parted ways with the NDA last month alleging failure in fulfilling the promises made in the State Reorganisation Act.
