Vastavam web: Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju today defended the protests by his party TDP, saying there is nothing wrong in voicing opinion about the demands of Andhra Pradesh.His comments come amid a strain in ties between the BJP and ally TDP, which has expressed disappointment over the Union Budget saying it did not offer anything to Andhra Pradesh, where it is in power.”When Andhra Pradesh was divided, what was left was a residue state of AP. Now, residue gives a lot of impressions. There are certain commitments that were made.
