Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday condemned the detention of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) MPs who were protesting near Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s residence to demand special status to Andhra Pradesh.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor also went to meet the parliamentarians at Tughlak Road police station.
“TDP MPs taken to Tughlak Road Police station for demanding special status for AP (Andhra Pradesh). I went and met them at police station in solidarity. We condemn their detention and fully support demand for special status of Andhra Pradesh,” Kejriwal said in a tweet.
After meeting the TDP MPs, Kejriwal said that their demands were “genuine” and Andhra Pradesh should be given special status.
On April 4, Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu had met Kejriwal to seek support for the no-confidence motion moved by TDP against the Centre.
They had discussed the special category status for Andhra Pradesh.
