Protesting TDP MPs Dragged Away From Modi's Residence

The TDP leaders were taken away by the Delhi Police as they protested in front of the Prime Minister's residence against the "injustice" meted out to Andhra Pradesh and demanding special status for the state. The motion hasn't been taken up for voting yet as the AIADMK MPs have been stalling proceedings in Parliament for more than three weeks now over the Cauvery row.

According to reports, they were detained and taken to the Tughlaq Road Police Station.

"I went and met them at police station in solidarity". They were forcefully removed. They were protesting over the demand of special category status for Andhra Pradesh.

The hours-long drama ended only at night after the TDP MPs were marshalled out of the House. "By standing against Narendra Modi, we could, for the first time, bring our problems to the notice of the nation", the Andhra Pradesh chief minister said, as per ANI.

TDP's parliamentary leader Y S Chowdhary said, "We are fighting for Andhra Pradesh's five crore people".

With Naidu hitting out at the PM, Kejriwal has found it convenient to cosy up to the Andhra Pradesh chief minister in the middle of the new undercurrents for the union of regional political parties against BJP ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Naidu has appealed to the AIADMK, which is the third largest entity in the Lok Sabha after the BJP and the Congress, to support the no-confidence-motion paving the way for the BJP's ouster.

Parliament was adjourned indefinitely on Friday, the last day of the Budget Session, after weeks of disruptions and repeated washouts.
