HYDERABAD: Indicating at souring relations between the TDP and the BJP, which are sharing power at the Centre and in AP, some TDP MPs said in Delhi on Saturday that they were ready to fight with the Union government to extract the state’s pound of flesh if their boss Naidu gives them the green signal.

Expressing unhappiness at the allocations made to AP,  N Sivaprasad, K Rammohan Naidu and Galla Jayadev said they were ready to take on the Modi government. They made it clear they would not compromise on getting special status for the state as was promised by the then UPA government while passing the AP Reorganisation Bill-2014.

Since TDP is also a part of the NDA government, the TDP MPs wanted the go ahead from their boss to take on the Centre.  “Once we are given a free hand to raise the issue of promises made by the Centre to AP, we will stall Parliament and see that our demands are fulfilled,” Sivaprasad said.

According to sources, the MPs are waiting for the outcome of the proposed meeting of Naidu with Modi. Some MPs — Rammohan Naidu and Murali Mohan — had already raised the special status and financial incentives’ demand in the previous session of Parliament and even threatened to stall the proceedings.
