  • Non-Serious Parties Resort to Name Sake Protests in Parliament

Shiv Sena had been sniping at BJP for long from within NDA, making it clear that it resented the inroads BJP made into Maharashtra.

Singh said that he would speak to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and ensure that the TDP's concerns were addressed. This is partly because the allies realise the ruling party is faltering. In the next election there is no way BJP can get 272. The meeting took place after a telephonic conversation between Singh and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday, the Times of India reported.

However, the Shiv Sena has not officially confirmed the telephone call. "When you are in a coalition, the basic coalition dharma is that you don't try to intrude into the other party's turf".

In Bihar, too, chief minister Nitish Kumar of JD (U) faction is unhappy with Modi for going back on the promise of Rs 1.5 lakh crore special package announced before the last assembly elections.

The meeting was held after the TDP, a key ally of the BJP, chose to raise the issue of "injustice" to Andhra Pradesh in the Union Budget 2018-19, in the Parliament. "The Shiv Sena will fight alone and win", he said. We highlighted this trend. The same is being repeated regarding Chandrababu Naidu. The BJP has not said anything about not wanting an alliance.

We are giving the BJP a last chance.

TDP sources said that at the party's meeting in Amaravati, CM Naidu apparently dissuaded his senior party colleagues from speaking about the fate of the alliance with and dwelt on the Rajasthan by-poll results where the tasted defeat. The TDP leader, however, denied it and said that no such communication has been made.

The TDP, an NDA ally, had protested that its demands had not been met in the Union Budget. It's true that BJP today doesn't need its NDA partners to survive at the Centre.

The BJP is reaching out to its partners. This can not be good news for BJP, with Lok Sabha elections due in a year's time. In the Rajya Sabha or Upper House though, it is in a minority and needs its allies' support.
