Discussion at the meeting centred around the Narendra Modi government's treatment of Andhra Pradesh and the "injustice" heaped on the state in the budget proposals, the sources said.

TDP is not happy with the allocation of funds to Andhra Pradesh in the Union Budget 2018 despite repeated appeals for more money for the construction of new state capital Amaravati.

Not just the Sena and TDP, some of the BJP's allies in Bihar have also taken to complain that their concerns are being neglected. As per the reports, BJP's Chief Amit Shah asked CM Chandrababu Naidu to rethink over the alliance. We will raise the issue in Parliament. The development came ahead of Naidu's emergency meet with his party leaders to decide on the future his alliance with the BJP.Shah's nervousness emanates from the fact that the Shiv Sena has already announced its intention to go alone in the next parliamentary elections. In the Parliamentary Board meeting, it was made a decision to fight for the rights of Andhra Pradesh even if it means stalling the Parliament.

The BJP's biggest southern ally is upset over being ignored in the budget that was presented on February 1.

Stating that TDP is ready to break its alliance with the BJP, if the ruling party at the Centre wishes to, Naidu told last week, "Because of coalition dharma, we are keeping quiet. We will fulfill all that has been promised to the people of Andhra Pradesh", Jaitley had told CNN-News18.
