With rift widening between BJP and ruling TDP of Andhra Pradesh, the state Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu went so far as to adopt a new political resolution.
The resolution lambasted the Narendra Modi government for its “dictatorial” attitude and vowed to unite regional parties to take on BJP and allies in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
“The Centre is weakening the financial condition of states… The unilateral style of functioning of the Modi government has led to a loss of trust of states in the central government. The states feel that the concept of federalism is only on paper,” the TDP resolution said.
The “dictatorial” attitude of the Narendra Modi government, its “unilateral and anti-people decisions, misuse of central intelligence agencies and regulatory agencies to suppress political opponents have become a matter of grave concern in the Indian polity”, it said.
“On the occasion of the swearing-in ceremony of HD Kumaraswamy, leaders of various political parties had assembled in Bangalore as a token of solidarity among regional political parties. N Chandrababu Naidu was a tall leader in this meet and it was a clear indication that regional political parties are going to be a power to reckon with in the 2019 elections as an alternative to national parties to form a government in Delhi,” the TDP resolution stated further.
The TDP resolution also shed light on the party’s decision to sever ties with BJP-led NDA.>
