4 of the 6 TDP MPs have left Chandrababu Naidu's party and joined the ruling-BJP on Thursday. This has come as a setback for the party after its defeat in the recently held general polls. Talking about crisis Naidu said, "We fought with BJP only for Special Category Status & state's interests. We sacrificed Central Ministers for Special Status. I condemn BJP's attempts to weaken TDP. Crisis is not new to the party."
