TDP MP Jayadev Galla accuses the BJP of declaring a war on his party.

“It is a war of discrimination, it is ‘dharma yuddh’. It is a war between majority and morality.”

The motion of no confidence is against the lack of fairness, lack of trust, lack of unbiased approach towards Andhra Pradesh, says Galla in Lok Sabha.
The last four years have posed tremendous challenges for the “new state with an old name”, says Galla.
