Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India], Mar 19 (ANI): Tamil Nadu Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam on Monday said that the Telegu Desam Party (TDP) issuing a no confidence motion against the Centre for the Special status to Andhra Pradesh can't be compared with Cauvery issue.

Panneerselvam further assured that the Tamil Nadu government will never let the state down.

"Don't compare TDP issue with Cauvery issue. The Tamil Nadu government will never let the state down. Supreme Court has given six weeks time for the formation of Cauvery management board, so if nothing happens we all will discuss future course of action," Pannerselvam said at the state Assembly.

On the other hand, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) working president MK Stalin, who is also the leader of Opposition in the Assembly urged the state government to support TDP's no confidence motion.

"Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, to put pressure on Central government, has gone for no confidence motion for the welfare of their state. I ask Tamil Nadu Government to support TDP's no confidence motion," Stalin said.

Earlier today, following a continuous uproar over the demand of 'No confidence motion' in the Lok Sabha, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the House till Tuesday. The motion, however, has not been moved in the Lower House today.

Rajya Sabha was also adjourned till tomorrow after TDP and AIADMK MPs created pandemonium over special status to Andhra Pradesh and Cauvery dispute, respectively. (ANI)
