Letting the cat out of the bag, TRS MP Vinod said there is no support from the Pink Party to AP's demand of Special Category Status. Vinod said TRS would support only the promises that were made to AP in the AP Reorganization Act. He said the party wouldn't support the Special Category Status to AP as it was not mentioned in the Act.
Raising objection against granting of the Special Category Status to AP would cause damage to Hyderabad and Telangana, Vinod said companies may move from Hyderabad to Vijayawada. He noted that Jayalalithaa had written a letter to Modi opposing Special Category Status to AP over the same reason.
Vinod also recalled that Siddharamaiah had raised objection against SCS to AP. Vinod went onto set the record that TRS won't support the AP's demand for Special Category Status. This is despite the fact that KCR's own daughter and Nizamabad MP Kavitha has openly backed AP's demand for the Special Category Status.
Meanwhile, Karimnagar MP said that the debate on TDP's No-Confidence Motion would be utilized by TRS for the advantage of the Telangana state adding that the Centre hasn't kept its promises made to the Telangana. He said TRS would highlight its points during the discussion over the No-Confidence Motion in parliament.
Talking about TDP's request to TRS to support their No-Confidence Motion, Vinod said it is "meaningless". Vinod said TDP and BJP were allies for four years and they have separated when their ties were severed.
Earlier, the TRS MPs had commented that TDP leaders have not discussed with them when moving the No-Confidence Motion against Modi government in the previous session of the parliament. And when TDP leaders sought TRS support for their second No-Trust Motion, TRS MPs say the interests of the Telangana is the only priority.
TRS floor leader in Lok Sabha Jithender Reddy said supporting the No-Trust Motion by TDP would cause damage to Telangana state as the state needs the support of the Centre and the Union Ministers. Vinod also opined that the No-Confidence Motion moved by the TDP may not come up to Voting Stage and it may only end up in the discussion stage.
