"During the meeting Budget and fund allocations to Andhra Pradesh were discussed. We will continue pressurising the Centre for it. We will also raise the matter in Parliament, if needed," Andhra Minister YS Chowdary said after the meeting.

On being asked about TDP-BJP alliance K.Rammohan Rao said, 'We are discussing about budget, political alliance is different and state govt development is different.'

The chief minister had said that he was highly disappointed with the Governement at the Centre, stating that no funds were alloted for various institutions and projects in the state and also for the construction of AP's capital city Amaravati.

It may be recalled that TDP and the BJP had contested the 2014 elections in alliance and the former is the second largest party in the NDA in terms of seats won. The BJP has two MPs and five MLAs from Andhra Pradesh.

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national general secretary Ram Madhav on Saturday said that the party and the Centre would soon be extending the olive branch to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and leader of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) N Chandrababu Naidu to resolve his concerns in a mutually beneficial to both parties.
