New Delhi, March 24: In an open letter to Telugu Desam Party Chief and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, BJP president Amit Shah wrote that the party’s decision to quit over special status to the state the NDA is “unfortunate and unilateral”.
In the nine-page letter, Shah said “This decision is both unfortunate as well as unilateral. It’s a decision; I am afraid, will be construed as being guided wholly & solely by political considerations instead of developmental concerns”.
The BJP President stated it is widely known that the Central Government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has left no stone unturned in ensuring the growth and prosperity of Andhra Pradesh.

Shah also highlighted the schemes Centre has started and expanded for benefit of the state.
Naidu’s party is also trying to move a no-confidence motion against the Modi government in the parliament after arch-rival Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSR Congress sent a notice. However, the no-confidence motions against the Centre have not been taken up so far due to a continued logjam in both houses.
The TDP, once the BJP’s biggest ally in the south, pulled out of the NDA government on March 16 over the grant of special category status to Andhra Pradesh.
