Kejriwal meets detained TDP MPs, offers help

On its part, rival TDP MPs, on Sunday morning, attempted to protest outside Prime Minister Narendra Modi's residence here but were detained and taken to the police station.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal met with the protesting MPs and expressed solidarity to their cause.

YSR Congress and the TDP have served notices to Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to move a no-confidence-motion against the BJP. "It is sad that the respectable MPs were sent to jail when they went to meet him".

While Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that the Centre has been endlessly waiting for Andhra Pradesh government to revert to a mechanism of receiving a special package equivalent to a special category state. They were forcefully removed.

YSR Congress MPs continued their fast here over the special category status to Andhra Pradesh even as party's honorary president Y S Vijayamma rued the lack of unity among parties.

The hours-long drama ended only at night after the TDP MPs were marshalled out of the House. If we still stick to our posts, it would be like cheating them. "We condemn this", he said.

In the last one week, dramatic scenes were witnessed in Parliament with sessions getting adjourned over disruptions from the Opposition, including TDP legislators.

Andhra Pradesh chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu today condemned the detention of ruling TDP MPs in New Delhi by police as the "height of the Centre's oppressive attitude". Naidu, whose party had walked out of the National Democratic Alliance over the issue recently, said it was the BJP which had come calling for the alliance in 2014.
