Parliament adjourned briefly amid protest by TMC, TDP and Akali Dal

People are dissatisfied because there is no specific mention of state issues in the Union Budget. Though several other TDP leaders wanted to counter Somu Veerraju's allegations, they said to have refrained from making comments owing to Naidu's orders. "We are with the TDP on this issue". "Definitely, in the next 2-3 days we are hopeful everything will be resolved", he added. Instead of leaving the coalition, the party will raise its demands in Parliament.

In addition to the Special Railway Zone, the state government had also urged the centre to release funds for the purposes of Amaravati, Kadapa Steel Plant and a railway division for the stretch between Vijayawada and Guntakal.

Political environment in Andhra Pradesh following the raw deal in the Union budget is heating up further with the opposition parties giving a call for a statewide shutdown on Feb 8. He asked them to chalk out plans to get the maximum benefits from the schemes announced by the Centre for all the states. We are discussing specific points.

Chowdhary, on February 1, had warned that the TDP had three options before it, namely, (1) either try and continue the alliance (2) make their MPs resign and (3) simply terminate an association with the BJP and the NDA.

As TDP increased tempo of protest the BJP is no doubt non pluseed but confident that Chandrababu would not go to any extreme steps of walking out of NDA. "You should think only of marriage", Chowdary said, when asked if a "divorce" with the BJP was imminent.

Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday alleged the BJP was trying to "upstage" his party on its home-turf, violating an understanding that underpinned the saffron alliance for over two decades.

If Naidu can galvanise the support of all these forces, he can bring pressure on Modi, since the BJP will have tough time in the next elections and the BJP definitely needs the support of allies, say analysts.
