At least a dozen Opposition parties, including the Congress and the Left parties, on Friday pledged support for no-confidence motions moved by the TDP and YSR Congress against the Narendra Modi-led government over the special status to Andhra Pradesh.

Congress criticised Mahajan's decision, accusing the government of staging protests to save itself from embarrassment.

"We are in the NDA, we support the government", said Shiromani Akali Dal MP Naresh Gujral.

While the AIADMK statement was silent on the reasons for the dismissal, Palanisamy had told IANS earlier: "If the Centre refuses to set up the CMB and the Cauvery Water Regulatory Committee (CWRC) as the Supreme Court ordered, the AIADMK may support the no-trust motion".

Narasimham in a letter to the Lok Sabha Secretary Snehlata Shrivastava said: "This House expresses No-Confidence in the Council of Ministers".

The leader said the possibility of the BJP government defeating the no-confidence motion is relatively high with the support from smaller parties.

In the event of a no-confidence motion being taken up, the numbers however favour the ruling BJP, with the BJP having 274 members in the 536-member Lok Sabha. Its 41 allies take the number to 315 - well above the current halfway mark of 270. It was Shiv Sena who raised its voice against GST, land acquisition and demonetization. Why did Chandrababu Naidu stay quiet then?

Reacting to his removal, Palanisamy wondered what principle of the party he violated and added that neither his view was not sought nor any notice sent to him by the party.

The TDP had fought the 2014 Lok Sabha elections along with the BJP and had 16 MPs in the lower house of the Parliament.

AIADMK, which had contested the 2014 Lok Sabha polls against BJP but is generally seen to be its ally, has 37 MPs.

Leaders from the Congress, Trinamool Congress, Samajwadi Party, BSP, NCP, CPM, CPI, RJD, RSP, Muslim League and AIMIM among others said they would support the motion. Government isn't considering special status for Andhra, despite PM's promise.
