The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) today said it will not snap ties with the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA).
The assertion comes amid speculation that the ruling party in Andhra Pradesh might rethink its ties with the BJP in view of its disappointment over allocation of funds to the state in the Union Budget.
Party leader and Union minister Y S Chowdary said after a meeting of party MPs and senior leaders with Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, that they would first raise issues concerning the state with the Centre and try to get them addressed.
He said, if the Centre does not concede to their demands, then they will undertake protest both inside and outside Parliament.
The BJP and the TDP are part of the ruling alliances in Andhra Pradesh and also at the Centre.
