YSR Congress to move no-confidence motion against centre, all eyes on CM Chandrababu Naidu’s next move

As voices demanding Special Status to Andhra Pradesh grows louder, the YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) has decided to move a no-confidence motion against the NDA government at the Centre during the Parliament session beginning March 5.

The announcement, which has taken other political parties in the state by surprise, has left them with no other option but to support the move. Even the ruling TDP, under pressure, has agreed to it but states that it was their last option.

With the BJP government enjoying absolute majority in Lok Sabha the central government is under no threat of collapsing. Furthermore, Andhra Pradesh has only 25 MPs, half of what is required to move the motion.moneycontrol
