Andhra special status: TDP MPs detained during protest outside PM Modi's residence

Chandrababu seeks AIADMK’s help in ‘no confidence motion’ against the BJP

Telugu Desam Party (TDP) parliamentarians were on Sunday detained by police when they tried to protest near Prime Minister Narendra Modi's residence at 7 Lok Kalyan Marg in New Delhi demanding Special Category Status (SCS) for Andhra Pradesh.

The protesting MPs, who were democratically doing protest, were detained on the way by the CRPF, Delhi Police who dragged them away ruthlessly.

"The Delhi chief minister said he would offer support to the TDP through members from his party in both Houses of the Parliament", Rajya Sabha MP CM Ramesh had said.

"The prime minister is the person to take decisions on special category status". They were forcefully removed. The TDP members had organised the protest over the demand for the special status for Andhra Pradesh.

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

It was 50/50 in the end. "It's a great feeling to be back", the 31-year-old said. Spain hasn't lost a tie as host since the first round in 1999 against Brazil.

"People believed us that we will fight for SCS. We condemn this", he said.

Launching an attack on the central government, Naidu warned that the TDP will agitate more vociferously if the central government didn't accord a special category status to Andhra Pradesh.

On April 4, Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu had met Kejriwal to seek support for the no-confidence motion moved by TDP against the Centre.

Parliament was adjourned indefinitely on Friday, the last day of the Budget Session, after weeks of disruptions and repeated washouts. Naidu, whose party had walked out of the National Democratic Alliance over the issue recently, said it was the BJP which had come calling for the alliance in 2014.
