PM to look after Civil Aviation Ministry

PM to look after Civil Aviation Ministry

With a strong showing in the north east, the BJP's next conquest has more than a few stumbling blocks in its way. "I'm doing this in the interest of the state", he told the media at a press conference at the Andhra Pradesh secretariat in Amaravati.

Civil Aviation Minister P Ashok Gajapathi Raju and Minister of State for Science and Technology & Earth Sciences Y S Chowdary, the two TDP ministers in the Modi government, met the prime minister on Thursday evening and tendered their letters of resignation. The reason was Andhra Pradesh not being granted special status.

Apparently, Chandrababu has asked the feedback of people over pulling out its ministers.

Notably, in the past, Kumar, too, had been demanding a special status for Bihar and even made it his poll plank in the state elections.

Last night, the TDP chose to exit the NDA government at the Centre, peeved over Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley's stance on the state's demand for grant of special category status.

But the BJP is also secure in the knowledge that most of its allies are unlikely to quit the ruling National Democratic Alliance despite their tantrums. TDP, which is perhaps the oldest ally of the NDA as Mr. Chandrababu Naidu used to be the Convener of NDA. The withdrawal of TDP ministers from the Union cabinet is not a worry for the BJP as the party as enjoys majority on its own in the Lok Sabha. He said that TDP hasn't gained anything extra due to alliance with BJP. Given that the BJP polled only a relatively small share of the votes, this does provide an opportunity for the party. The MPs also informed Naidu that they all promised support to the TDP in its fight for Special Category Status (SCS) for Andhra Pradesh.

Naidu's latest gambit is expected to herald re-alignment of political forces ahead of the 2019 elections and hasten the process of forging the Third Front as an alternative to Congress and BJP. "The Sena has for always been clashing with the BJP on several issues". BJP is doing everything it can to get some numbers in the Upper House, so break-up with TDP means falling short of numbers in Rajya Sabha.

While BJP is on a winning spree in the country with government already formed in 20 states, the Amit Shah-led BJP has no other alliance in southern states.

She alleged that the Naidu government had not submitted utilisation certificates for funds released by the Centre for several projects. "It was because of the public opinion built by YSR Congress and Left parties through intensive campaign in favour of special status", he said. "However, partial electoral arrangements can't be ruled out". Both Raju and Chowdury were careful in thanking PM for the help extended during their tenure in the cabinet. In the south, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu are tough nuts to crack as far as the BJP is concerned.
