Amaravathi: Andhra Pradesh Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu today clarified that his Telugu Desam party pulled out of the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre as the latter failed to fulfill the assurance of special status category to residual Andhra Pradesh as enshrined in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act of 2014.
Talking to mediapersons here on Sunday, Ramakrishnudu alleged that the ruling party at the Centre has been orchestrating raids by IT and ED on the residences and companies of the TDP leaders. As part of the BJP conspiracy against the TDP, YSRCP president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy and actor-turned Janasena president Pavan Kalyan were playing active role in the BJP game plan.
Reminding that AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi has claimed that Jaganmohan Reddy was his good friend, Yanamala wondered how AIMIM chief could extends support to Jagan who was a supporter of the BJP. He also wondered whether the Majlis chief abandoned his party’s political philosophy.
