Telugu Desam MPs to up the ante in Parliament

Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu

Naidu said the budget had disappointed him and people across the state.

MP Avanthi Srinivas said that party MPs will meet Modi and explain the injustice done to Andhra Pradesh in the Union budget.

However, the TDP expressed "serious" displeasure over the Union Budget 2018 and one of the party MP said they will declare a "war" against the BJP.

The decision was taken when Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu met TDP members at the pary's Parliamentary Board meeting in Amaravati on Sunday. The hardline Maharashtrian party had announced two weeks ago that it would contest the next Assembly and General elections alone, though it has not yet quit the NDA.

TDP leader and federal Minister of State for Science and Technology Y Sujana Chowdhary told reporters that for the party the state's interests were more important than the alliance with the BJP.

A frustrated nurse coming off a long shift in the emergency room shared a bit of unsolicited advice in a Facebook video over the weekend, warning people not to come to the "cesspool of funky flu at the ER" unless they really have to.

Naidu's party is third only to the BJP and Shiv Sena in the NDA in terms of seats won in parliament.

Asked if BJP chief Amit Shah had spoken with Naidu, he replied in the negative.

"We shall discuss the issues and try to get them resolved". TDP is an old ally of the BJP.

Speculation over the state of the BJP-TDP relationship has been making the rounds ever since finance minister Arun Jaitley presented the Budget in Parliament on February 1. "When cities like Bangalore and Ahmadabad were given metro projects but not Amaravati or even Visakhapatnam", Srinivasa Rao said, evoking support from the CM. Later, Naidu called up Singh and conveyed that his party was upset with the budget. It, however, forged an alliance with the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) headed by former chief minister Neiphiu Rio. "Whatever is good for state, we'll do it", Srinivas had said. "We will spell out a staggered strategy at our MPs' meeting tomorrow and, if possible, meet the PM to submit a representation on our demands", the CM is believed to have said, according to a minister who spoke to The Sunday Guardian on Saturday.

In 2014 Lok Sabha polls, TDP-BJP alliance had won 18 out of 25 seats.
