Making light of Jana Sena president Pawan Kalyan's comments against the Chief Minister, he sarcastically said the "agnatavasi" had just come out of "agnatham" and was reading out borrowed political script.

However, the government has the numbers in the Lok Sabha and the motion is unlikely to trouble it even if it is supported by other opposition parties.

The TDP Politburo will meet on Friday evening, when it may take a decision on parting ways with the BJP, as its ties with the ruling party have already reached a point of no return.

As the TDP is expected to formally leave the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in the coming days, according to senior TDP leaders who did not want to be identified.

'AP CM Chandrababu Naidu has no problem with us. Naidu alleged that BJP tried to "suppress" him with the support of "corrupt" YSR Congress Party.

Furthermore, the Chandrababu Naidu-led TDP wrote to the Lok Sabha Secretary-General for moving a motion on "No-Confidence in the Council of Ministers" in the House. Naidu, who was an admirer of Modi, is now publicly attacking him, saying the Prime Minister did not ever call him to discuss the special status issue.

The "Power Star" also announced that he would go on an indefinite fast demanding the special category status for the State. The central government accused Naidu of not responding to the proposals for special package. The TDP has become the latest ally to get out of the NDA. A press release from his office said that the JSP's manifesto for the 2019 assembly and parliamentary elections will be launched on 14 August. He made it clear that he was breaking with the TDP as well as the BJP.
