The TDP MPs were upset with the Centre and PM Modi for quite a few years. However, after Finance Minister Arun Jaitley cleared last week that no special status will be granted to Andhra Pradesh, the TDP called for a party meeting and announced its decision. The new blow comes to BJP in the wake of already one ally-Shivsena abandoning the NDA coalition for 2019 Lok Sabha Election.
On the backdrop of the humiliating defeat of BJP at the hands of SP-BSP alliance and RJD in UP Bypolls and Bihar Bypolls, this development has delivered another setback for the party.
