Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy, General Secretary CPI has issued the following statement:
CPI has decided to support the no-confidence motion in Parliament against the RSS-BJP led NDA government of Narendra Modi, as it failed to keep up its promise of special status to Andhra Pradesh.
Subramanian Swamy is deliberately trying to mislead by saying that BJP cannot fulfill Congress promise. It is a promise given by the then Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh on the floor of Raya Sabha with the insistence of all parties’ MPs including Arun Jaitley and Venkaiah Naidu. Hence it is a promise of the government that is binding on the next government. It took four years for Chandrababu Naidu to realize that BJP will not keep up its promises. The decision of TDP to come out of NDA is a positive development.
