Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan has asked the YSR Congress to move a no-trust motion against the Narendra Modi government, reported two leading newspapers, after YS Jagan Mohan Reddy dared Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party to do so Sunday.
Kalyan said he was willing to “personally” ask for support from other political outfits “if the YSR Congress moves the motion,” and expressed hope that “around 80 members” would back it, The Hindu reported.
Chandrababu Naidu has said a no-confidence motion “should be the last resort.”
“We will continue our fight for justice to AP. If that doesn’t happen, we will muster support from other parties and move the no-trust motion,” Naidu said
Ties between the BJP and TDP, both members of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), came under severe strain after the southern party accused the Centre of making “insufficient” allocations for Andhra Pradesh in the Union Budget.
