TDP Protests

Several MPs belonging to the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) were detained for staging a protest outside Prime Minister Narendra Modi's residence at Lok Kalyan Marg in New Delhi on Sunday.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal met the arrested TDP MPs "in solidarity" at the police station.

On Friday, party MPs staged a protest in Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan's chambers but were removed by security marshalls later in the evening.


The 21 MPs - including Ashok Gajapathi Raju and J C Diwakar Reddy - were bundled into a bus by police from Race Course Road in the heart of New Delhi from where they set out to reach the prime minister's residence.

He said he was supporting their demand for Special Status for their state. During the informal meet, Kejriwal expressed his support to the MPs.

YSR Congress MPs continued their fast here over the special category status to Andhra Pradesh even as party's honorary president Y S Vijayamma rued the lack of unity among parties. We will free them in an hour. "We condemn this", he said.


The Andhra Pradesh Assembly on Friday passed a resolution demanding a special session of Parliament to discuss the implementation of the AP Reorganisation Act.

On April 4, Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu had met Kejriwal to seek support for the no-confidence motion moved by TDP against the Centre. However, due to continuous stalemate in Parliament, it could not be taken for discussion. Another TDP MP Rammohan Naidu has condemned the act of the Centre to detain them and disrupt their "peaceful", "democratic" protest.
