BJP ally TDP dissatisfied with Union Budget, Naidu calls party meeting
Hyderabad, Feb 2 (IBNS): Arun Jaitley's Union budget may have targeted the poor section of the society, but it has not gone down well with the Telegu Desam Party (TDP), an ally of BJP at the Centre, which rules Andhra Pradesh, media reports said.
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu has also called a party meeting to decide the next course of action.
The party is not happy with the allocation of resources for the state in the budget.
Speaking to reporters, TDP leader YS Chowdhary expressed his disappointment over the entire budget.
Chowdhary, who is the Minister of State for Science and Technology, said there was no progress in the infrastructural works in last four years.
"The Polavaram project was linked to the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD), but there was no smooth flow of funds. The budget should have included it," he said.
TDP is presently an ally of BJP in the NDA government.
However, the party has recently sided with the Opposition in Rajya Sabha, where BJP lacks the majority, demanding a review of theTriple Talaq bill.
