AP CM Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday shown displeasure on the TDP MPs for their underperformance in Rajya Sabha during the debate held on the AP special status matter. TDP MPs and other senior leaders have strongly requested Naidu to look into the options of coming out of NDA without continuing further as a partner. Criticism on the center made by the TDP leaders has reached to its heights ever. Putting an extra step, TDP MP, JC Diwakar Reddy commented that the Prime Minister Modi is considering Mr. Naidu and the Bihar CM Nitish Kumar as his competitors. Another MP Kesineni Srinivas said that he is ready even to resign from his membership of the Lok Sabha for the sake of special status.
However, Naidu said that he is also upset about the recent attitude of center towards Andhra Pradesh but he asked the MPs and his party leaders not to criticize anyone personally. He said that let us fight until we succeed in getting the special status category to AP.
