TDP momentum of no-confidence motion against the NDA government, received Inertia with CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury tweet: “Its (BJP’s) betrayal of the promise of special status for Andhra Pradesh is inexcuseable. Its all-round failure and evasion of parliamentary accountability needs to be highlighted.”
The Telugu Desam Party today decided to quit the NDA, days after two of its ministers resigned from the Narendra Modi government following the Centre’s refusal to grant Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh.
The party will also move a no-confidence motion against the Modi government over the injustice meted out to the state, an official communique said.
TMC, Congress, AIMIM, BJD, CPM, CPI, AAP, TRS have extended support to the TDP for the no-confidence motion. Mamata Banerjee’s TMC was the first to extend support followed by the Congress. But for the no-confidence motion to be passed, the house — the Lok Sabha — has to be in order. Given the numbers in the treasury benches, it seems improbable, but the coming together of the opposition, will act as a warning to the government ahead of the general elections.
Further no confidence move shall not be successfully unless saffron is either betrayed by its ambitious lots or soft target within BJP which sit on fence for an opportunity of windfall gain in politics.
