"As of now, the alliance is still there". Singh assured the TDP that he would discuss their grievances with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Recently, Naidu had stated that if the BJP does not want the alliance, the TDP will chart its own course. "There is fermentation of anti-BJP feeling in the party and among the people". "We will need to wait at least a month to assess if its so-called farm friendly measures are effective on the ground and whether it succeeds in putting a stop to farmer suicides in Maharashtra", he said.
In addition to the Special Railway Zone, the state government had also urged the centre to release funds for the purposes of Amaravati, Kadapa Steel Plant and a railway division for the stretch between Vijayawada and Guntakal. "The next 20 days are important. They must offer something substantial. a concrete announcement while the budget session of parliament is on", said TDP lawmaker Ram Mohan Naidu after the party's meeting on Sunday.
Secondly, the Centre would tighten its screw on release of funds for Naidu's projects like Polavaram and Amaravati (which would be released in different forms) by raising several queries and both the projects would come to a halt, causing huge damage to the TDP's electoral prospects. Thackeray further commented, 'Naidu should decide his due course and political journey but Shiv Sena is prepared to walk on the edge of a sword for protection of Hindutva'. I am hopeful that a few more NDA constituents would contact Matoshree bungalow over phone and I would come to know about it through media'. He also reiterated his party will fight all future elections alone.
He is contemplating launching a pressure group within NDA by joining hands with the other allies of the BJP in other states. "The speculation was created a day before the TDP meeting to create an impression that all BJP allies are breaking away which is not the case", said the BJP functionary.
