A delegation of Telugu Desam Party today called on DMK leader Kanimozhi here seeking her party's support to a no-confidence motion proposed by it against the Narendra Modi government and alleged the ruling AIADMK declined to meet it over the issue under pressure from BJP.
The three-member delegation, led by TDP MP C M Ramesh, met Kanimozhi, DMK's Rajya Sabha member and party chief M Karunanidhi's daughter, and sought support to the motion to be moved during the coming monsoon session of Parliament.
The TDP, which pulled out of the BJP-led NDA on the issue of special category status to Andhra Pradesh, had moved a no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha during the previous Parliament session, but it could not be taken up since the House was not in order.
Ramesh told PTI that they submitted to Kanimozhi a letter from Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu. Kanimozhi said the DMK supported the TDP's demand for special category status.
Palaniswami's office told PTI that no such appointments were scheduled. Panneerselvam's office could not be reached for comments.
"We came to Chennai only after receiving an appointment from the CM and deputy CM, but after coming here we were kept waiting indefinitely," Ramesh charged.
