Story highlights

The TDP, which pulled out of the BJP-led NDA today, had said that it would back the no-confidence motion

The Jagan Mohan Reddy-led YSR Congress formally said on Thursday that they will move a no-confidence motion against the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in the Lok Sabha.

YSR Congress Party MP (Member of Parliament) YV Subba Reddy wrote to Lok Sabha Secretary-General for moving the motion on "No-Confidence in the Council of Ministers" in the house.



The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) pulled out of the NDA today. The party had already even pulled its ministers out of the central government.

The party also informed the Lok Sabha about moving a no-confidence motion against the NDA today.



The Congress also said it would support a no-confidence motion against the NDA.




Andhra Pradesh chief minister and TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu had immediately announced support for the YSR Congress motion of no-confidence. He reportedly has the backing of other Opposition parties as well.

TDP and YSR Congress have been agitating in both Houses over the special status demand for Andhra Pradesh. 

A motion of no-confidence backed by nine MPs is much lesser than the 50 required for the motion to be admitted, even with the backing of 16 MPs of the TDP.

The no-confidence motion is likely to be defeated in the Lok Sabha.
