New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today spoke to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, a day after the TDP chief decided to pull out of the NDA government at the Centre.

According to official sources, the two Union ministers from the TDP quota will meet the prime minister at 6 PM today.

In a late night development yesterday, the TDP had announced its decision to pull out its ministers from the NDA government.

The two TDP ministers in the Modi government are civil aviation minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju and minister of state for science and technology YS Chowdary.

The TDP on Wednesday night had decided to pull out of the NDA government at the Centre and asked two of its ministers in the Modi government to tender their resignation on Thursday but kept the door for ties with the BJP ajar.

The TDP took the painful decision in the interest of the State as it was left with no other option, party chief and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said at an emergency press briefing.

The two ministers in the Modi government were Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju and Minister of State for Science and Technology YS Chowdary.

In a tit-for-tat action, the two BJP ministers in the Naidu government–K Srinivasa Rao and T Manikyala Rao–too resigned.

The TDP has 16 MPs in the Lok Sabha.

Naidu’s announcement came barely hours after Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley told a press conference in New Delhi that funds equivalent to what a special category State receives would be extended to Andhra Pradesh, but drew a line saying politics cannot increase the quantum of money.

We have now come out of the NDA. Party-to-party (TDP-BJP ties) issue will be decided later, he added, hinting that their alliance may continue in the future.

Jaitley said giving special category status, as demanded by Naidu, to any State apart from those in the North-East and three hill provinces were not constitutionally possible after the implementation of the 14th Finance Commission recommendations.
