BJP president Amit Shah today in a letter to TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu wrote that the latter’s decision to quit the NDA government was “unilateral” and guided by “political considerations”. Calling TDP Supremo’s assertion as “untrue and baseless”, BJP Chief Amit Shah in his letter addressed to TDP Chief and Andhra Pradesh’s CM said the party’s decision to quit NDA was “both unfortunate as well as unilateral,” and that BJP is not insensitive towards AP people.
“This decision is both unfortunate as well as unilateral. It is a decision; I am afraid, will be construed as being guided wholly and solely by political considerations instead of development considerations,” Shah wrote.
TDP Chief and AP CM Chandra Babu Naidu, earlier this week, said he could not understand NDA government’s stance regarding AP’s issues, media reported.
Addressing a conference with his party workers, Chandra Babu Naidu said, “We pulled out two ministers from the Union cabinet and then quit the NDA. We also moved a no-confidence motion against the Modi government. Yet, the Centre remains unmoved. What could be its strategy behind this stubborn stance,” a daily newapaper reports.
The BJP president was responding to TDP’s decision to quit the NDA on the issue of special status for Andhra Pradesh.
“The Bharatiya Janata Party has been a firm believer in the concept of politics of performance and development for all has been our guiding principle. Andhra Pradesh figures very prominently on our agenda of National Development and it is widely known that Union govt led by PM Modi has left no stone unturned in ensuring the growth and prosperity of AP,” Shah further wrote in the letter.
In his letter Shah reiterated the contributions made by his party for Andhra Pradesh saying that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has always held the interest of the people of the state paramount.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi has left no stone unturned in ensuring the growth and prosperity of the people of Andhra Pradesh,” he wrote.
Earlier this month, TDP – which has 16 MPs in Rajya Sabha – announced its decision to quit the BJP-led NDA at the Centre, a week after two of its representatives left the Narendra Modi government and a day after YSR Congress moved a no-trust motion against the Modi government over the issue of special status for Andhra Pradesh.
The TDP exited the BJP-led alliance over the demands to accord ‘special category status’ to Andhra Pradesh and other commitments made at the time of state’s division in 2014.
The party has also moved a no-confidence motion against the Modi government in Lok Sabha, which could not be taken up due to continuous ruckus in the Parliament.
