New Delhi [India] Feb 06: A group of MPs belonging to the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) protested outside the Parliament House, alleging the Centre of neglecting Andhra Pradesh in the Union Budget 2018-19.
Dressed up as Vedic sage, Narada, parliamentarian Shiv Prasad said like emissary Narada, he was being a bridge between the people of Andhra Pradesh and the central government.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi will have to face consequences if he neglects Loka Kalyan," he said.
"This is the BJP-led government's fourth budget and we want all those promises fulfilled in the current term itself," he said.
Senior TDP leader, TG Venkatesh, said discussions would not help anymore and that the Centre needed to fulfill its commitment.
"They have included BJP-led states like Rajasthan, Maharashtra etc. in this budget, have announced package for Karnataka as they hope to come in power in the state, but have not fulfilled their commitment made to the people of Andhra Pradesh," he said.
