Hari Babu on Sunday asserted that the Centre had extended adequate help to Andhra Pradesh.

Chowdary added that the TDP would raise the state's demands, if required, in Parliament. "If required we will protest inside Parliament". "We were given clear instructions from our party central leadership to maintain the coalition dharma but at the same time take forward the message that the Centre has been helping Andhra Pradesh all these years, irrespective of any budget allocations".

The move comes a day after the TDP made a decision to remain in the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and said it will continue to demand a special package for Andhra Pradesh. Naidu, who chaired a Cabinet meeting on Friday, told his ministerial colleagues that he was not afraid of quitting NDA, if necessary, but there was time for that. It is despite Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh's request to Chandrababu Naidu not to "protest" in parliament and promised to look into all the problems of AP. The Minister of State for Science and Technology said that the people of Andhra were not happy with the budget. Even BJP leaders are quite confident about resolving the issues at the earliest with TDP. Naidu did not speak to Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, BJP's ally in Maharashtra, as some media reports claimed, the minister told reporters.

Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu called TDP meeting today to discuss ties with its ally Bharatiya Janta Party.
