Amaravati: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has said that his party is not averse to bringing in a no-confidence motion in Parliament against the Narendra Modi government, over the 'injustice' meted out to the southern state in the Union Budget 2018-19. Naidu said the move would be aimed at getting “justice” for the southern state with the support of other parties. He, however, added that such a move would be the “last resort”.
The remarks came just hours after Naidu had rejected demands by the opposition YSR Congress and Jana Sena that a no-trust motion should be moved against the Union government. Sources had said during the day yesterday that Naidu, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief, was considering to call an all-party meet to discuss ways to exert pressure on the Centre to secure the state’s “rightful” due.
The BJP-TDP ties came under severe strain following the Union Budget presented earlier this month, alleging the Centre had ignored the southern state and made “insufficient” allocations for it.
