HYDERABAD:After the TDP leaders’ attack on the BJP-led NDA government over non-allocation of adequate funds to AP, now it is the turn of the State BJP leaders to fire salvos at their ally, the TDP.

TDP founder NTR’s daughter Daggubati Purandeswari, once considered as the bete noire of Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, on Wednesday criticised the state government, for the first time in the recent past, saying that though the Centre had expressed its willingness to supply fodder and seeds to farmers in the drought-hit areas, the State government did not avail this facility. Her remarks, after calling on her party bosses in Delhi, indicate that the saffron party leaders in AP are gradually upping the ante against the TDP.

BJP ministers in Naidu’s Cabinet along with party MLAs and MPs from the State on Wednesday called on their Delhi bosses to apprise them of current developments in AP.

The BJP team headed by Purandeswari called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh separately. They requested Modi to ensure that all promises made to AP are implemented.

BJP MLA Vishnukumar Raju said officials from Delhi would visit AP in April first week to study the drought situation. Ministers P Manikyala Rao and K Srinivas, BJP MPs K Haribabu and G Ganga Raju, MLA A Satyanarayana and BJP leader P Kapileswaraiah were part of the delegation.
