TDP Lawmakers Stayed Put After Rajya Sabha Was Adjourned. Marshalled Out

MPs on Sunday protested outside Prime Minister Narendra Modi's residence at 7 Lok Kalyan Marg in Delhi demanding special category status for Andhra Pradesh. Five MPs of YSR Congress, who is also supporting the cause, announced their resignation from the Lower House on Friday to protest against the NDA government's "failure" in the case.

"This is not democracy, not correct".

The Telugu Desam Party MPs were bundled into a bus by police and CRPF personnel from Race Course Road from where they had started the march and sent to Tughlak Road police station. They had to be forcefully removed later in the evening. They were protesting over the demand of special category status for Andhra Pradesh.

The TDP members described their eviction from the Rajya Sabha as an "insult to Andhra Pradesh". "We condemn this", he said. "We have been elected by the people to address their issues".

On 4 April, Kejriwal had met Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu as part of the latter's efforts to mobilise support for the no-confidence motion moved by TDP against the Centre. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had held a meeting with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief in Delhi last month in order to bolster support for a third front. "But the bifurcation was done so quickly and the promises made to the residual Andhra Pradesh is yet to be fulfilled", she said.

The TDP chief accused the Central government of working with an oppressive mentality. Naidu met several leaders of opposition parties and BJP allies to garner support for the no-trust motion, but it wasn't taken up in the recently concluded session due to repeated adjournments in the parliament.
