Amit Shah took stock of the political situation in Andhra Pradesh with state leaders

Vastavam web: BJP president Amit Shah today took stock of the political situation in Andhra Pradesh with party leaders from there, after its long time ally TDP’s decision to exit the ruling NDA over the issue of Special Category Status (SCS) for the state.BJP general secretary Ram Madhav told reporters that the Centre had done a lot for the state and was willing to do more than the special category status, asserting that his party will explain its position to its people.The saffron party finds itself in a tight corner in the state as its two main parties, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the YSR Congress, have sought to corner it following the Centre’s refusal to grant the SCS to Andhra Pradesh.

Both the regional parties have also moved a no-confidence motion against the Modi government in the Lok Sabha.The BJP had won two Lok Sabha seats in 2014 in alliance with the TDP, which won 15 seats.
