VIJAYAWADA: Communist Party of India (CPI) Andhra Pradesh Unit Secretary K Rama Krishna said that the party would support the 'No-Confidence motion' being moved by the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) in the Lok Sabha and asked the latter to take the support of Congress.

Addressing a press conference here on Tuesday, he said that TDP MP Y Sujana Chowdary announced that the No-Confidence motion was being moved in the lower house over non-fulfillment of the provisions of 2014 AP Reorganization Act.

He said that the CPI would extend support to the No Confidence motion but at the same time the TDP should muster the support of Congress party .

Mr Rama Krishna alleged that Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is celebrating the completion of 1500 days in power but he had failed completely to fulfill the assurances made to the people of the state.

Alleging that corruption is rampant in the state, he said that the recently launched 'Anna canteens' was plunged into corruption.

He demanded the Chief Minister to release a "White Paper" on the MoUs, which the state government signed for the investments of Rs.20 lakh crore.

He said that CPI and CPI-M would organize a massive rally on September 15 here and form a human chain with one crore people on July 25 protesting against the state government's failures in fulfilling the assurances.

The CPI state council meeting would be held in Rajahmundry on August 11 and 12 in which the party would evolve a strategy to carry out a series of agitations demanding the Centre to grant Special Category Status (SCS) and fulfilling the Re-organisation Act assurances.
