TDP quit due to politics, not development concerns: BJP chief

Assam Amit Shah sets target of 21 seats from Northeast TDP quit due to politics, not development concerns: BJP chief

Unfortunate and unilateral is what Amit Shah said in a nine-page letter written to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and TDP chief, Chandrababu Naidu. He added that Naidu's assertion that the BJP is insensitive to the aspirations of the people of Andhra Pradesh is "untrue and baseless". "PM Narendra Modi has worked with a "Team India" spirit, with all the Chief Ministers and devolved far more funds - 42% of central revenues (as against 32% earlier) - amounting to an additional Rs 2 lakh crore, to the states", Amit Shah said. It is a decision, I am afraid will be construed as being guided wholly and exclusively by political considerations instead of development concerns.

TDP, once the BJP's biggest ally in south, pulled out of the Centre on March 16.

Bemoaning the problems in the state, he said that the special category status, which was not bestowed upon AP, would have facilitated in tackling those problems.

He cited the number of awards that have been received by his government for performances.

Mr Shah reminded the TDP chief that when, during the previous Lok Sabha, his party did not have adequate representation, it was the Saffron party that set the agenda and ensured that justice was done to the Telugu people in Andhra and Telangana.

"I would like you to introspect whether political parties should be pitting sentiments and development against each other to further their political agenda..."

The letter also claimed that the state government had only spent 12% of development grants to the tune of Rs 1,050 crore that was released as special developmental assistance to the seven backward districts in the state.

BJP national spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao attacked the TDP's decision to call off its four-year alliance with the BJP, calling the exit "unfortunate and unilateral".

Amit Shah stated many examples of Centre's concern for Andhra Pradesh and said, " "This is in direct contrast to the Congress Party, which not only mismanaged the bifurcation but also showed zero sensitivity towards the Telugu people, which is in line with their historic apathy to the Telugu community".

Chandrababu Naidu's TDP is also trying to bring a no-confidence motion against the government in the Parliament. "We pulled out two ministers from the Union cabinet and then quit the NDA. What could be its strategy behind this stubborn stance", he said during a teleconference with the party workers.
