TDP MPs attempt to protest near PM's residence, detained

Delhi Police said, the MPs were allowed to leave but not to march towards the PM house. They were taken to the Tughlaq Road Police Station. "No case will be lodged against them", a news portal quoted a police officer as saying.

Their rally started began early in the morning from Rajya Sabha member and former minister Y S Chowdary's residence where they discussed the party's future course of action. "Mr Modi came to me and said that the Congress had ruined Andhra Pradesh and our parties should join hands for the development of Andhra Pradesh", Mr Naidu said.

The support from AAP head Kejriwal comes days after Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu met with the Delhi CM as part of his efforts to mobilise support for the no-confidence motion against the government over the special status issue.

"The TDP's demand should be considered".

Later in the day, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal also met detained Telugu Desam Party (TDP) MPs at a police station.

"The demand being made by them is completely just".

"This is not democracy, not correct. We support the demand", he added.

On Friday, party MPs staged a protest in Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan's chambers but were removed by security marshalls later in the evening.

After meeting the TDP MPs, Kejriwal said that their demands were "genuine" and Andhra Pradesh should be given special status.

The hours-long drama ended only at night after the TDP MPs were marshalled out of the House.

Lok Sabha members of TDP chose Parliament's Central Hall as the venue of their sit-in protest.
