The TDP, on a mission to garner support from political parties for its no-confidence motion against the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government, met leaders of six parties including the TRS, the DMK, the CPI, the CPI(M) and the NCP.

The TDP teams, sources say, did not get “outright support” from them for the motion. They, however, assured them all possible support for the cause — implementation of the provisions of the Reorganisation Act, 2014 and the Special Category Status (SCS).

A team comprising C.M. Ramesh, T.G. Venkatesh and M. Murali Mohan met DMK Rajya Sabha MP Kanimozhi in Chennai and handed over the letter written by Mr. Naidu on Monday. The team did not get audience from the AIADMK leaders. They then flew to Bengaluru to meet Karnataka Chief Minister H. D. Kumaraswamy.

The TDP team did not get appointment from the MIM, the Shiv Sena and the Kerala Congress. Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray told them that he was busy monitoring the relief measures being made for the rain victims in Mumbai. He suggested them to meet him later. The team is planning to meet the MIM and the Kerala Congress leaders in Delhi before the beginning of the Parliament session, sources say.

Another delegation led by Y. S. Chowdary met TRS leader K. Keshav Rao in Hyderabad. Mr. Rao is believed to have said the Union government should implement the Reorganisation Act in letter and spirit. The TRS, however, did not give any concrete assurance to the three-member team on the no-trust motion.

A team led by Thota Narasimham met NCP president Sharad Pawar, and party leaders said he was sympathetic to their cause.
