Arun Jaitley's Union Budget has not gone down well with the Telegu Desam Party (TDP), the biggest ally of BJP from the South, which rules Andhra Pradesh.

She says oncologists and cardiologists need to work together closely to give patients the best chance against both diseases. The latest figures from 2015 show there were 11,819 deaths from prostate cancer compared with 11,442 from breast cancer .

Naidu was apparently upset with the BJP over the poor allocation for Andhra Pradesh in the Union Budget 2018 that was presented on February 1. So CBN and MPs chose to voice out in parliament and outside the parliament and express their dissatisfaction on BJP's treatment to AP state. And also said they are not satisfied with the budget allocated to Andhra state.

"We are more interested in development of the state and welfare of people and whatever state reorganization act promises must be fulfilled".

At the TDP Parliamentary Board meeting in Amaravati, Naidu said that the party would begin its fight by raising the issue in the Parliament, sources revealed to IANS. Calling TDP "an old ally", he said the BJP is "committed to the interests of Andhra Pradesh". "If we don't get clarity, definitely we will protest inside Parliament during the Budget session", the Union minister said. Sources say that Naidu has even asked the TDP MPs to stall proceedings of Parliament, if needed to press for their demand. It, however, forged an alliance with the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) headed by former chief minister Neiphiu Rio. "Our CM had no conversation with Shiv Sena or anyone else", he added.

Union home minister Rajnath Singh appears to have salvaged from brink the tottering TDP-BJP alliance, at least for the time being. "We will spell out a staggered strategy at our MPs' meeting tomorrow and, if possible, meet the PM to submit a representation on our demands", the CM is believed to have said, according to a minister who spoke to The Sunday Guardian on Saturday.
