As TDP on Thursday quit the Modi government, the Congress said all was never well within the alliance and a "parochial autocratic alliance led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has little place for dissent and the present disintegration of NDA is a reflection of that".
The TDP on Thursday quit the Modi government, with its Ministers P. Ashok Gajapathi Raju (Civil Aviation) and Y.S. Chowdary (Science and Technology) submitting their resignations.

Surjewala said: "This talaq, marriage, and possible talaq, has to be explained by them.

"But drunk with power and overconfidence, the Modi government has little place for those who dissent either from within or from outside and the present disintegration of the NDA is a reflection of that," he added.
