  • TDP Protests

MPs detained at a police station for trying to protest outside Prime Minister Narendra Modi's residence over their demand for special status to Andhra Pradesh.

The decision to protest was taken after party MPs held a meeting at Rajya Sabha member YS Chowdary's residence on Sunday morning to decide the future course of action.

"This is not democracy, not correct". Kejriwal justified TDP's demands for special status and put the blame for the detention of the MPs on Modi.

All the agitators have been detained at the Tughlak Road police station, where the Delhi CM met them as a show of solidarity with their cause.

However, Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan didn't introduce it due to continuous disruptions in the Parliament. They were forcefully removed.

Similarly, our PM has created fear within the opposition, which is now teaming up to fight the BJP in the election", said Shah. Having been involved in corruption worth Rs 4.5 lakh crore, you are making this kind of a frivolous allegation against us.

After meeting the TDP MPs, Kejriwal said that their demands were "genuine" and Andhra Pradesh should be given special status.

The hours-long drama ended at night only after the TDP MPs were marshalled out from the House.

Meanwhile, members of YSR Congress Party continue indefinite hunger strike at Andhra Pradesh Bhawan over demand of special category status for Andhra.

With Naidu hitting out at the PM, Kejriwal has found it convenient to cosy up to the Andhra Pradesh chief minister in the middle of the new undercurrents for the union of regional political parties against BJP ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

TDP's parliamentary leader Y S Chowdhary said, "We are fighting for Andhra Pradesh's five crore people". The TDP also tried to bring a no-confidence motion against the government.
