The ruling parties in the Telugu states are divided over their stance on the no-confidence motion against the Union cabinet, for which notice has already been issued in Parliament.

In Telangana, the opposition parties have declared support for the no-confidence motion moved by the opposition parties, individually or collectively.

The parties in Andhra Pradesh have offered support to the Union cabinet led by the Bharatiya Janata Party. The stance of certain political parties in the states is at variance with that of their respective parent units at the national level.
In Telangana, the ruling BRS, main opposition Congress, and the
Majilis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) are supporting the no- confidence motion.

Without joining the opposition front, the BRS moved a no- confidence motion against the Union cabinet in Parliament separately.

The MIM has supported the move of BRS in the no- confidence motion.

While the BRS and the Congress are fighting each other in the state; at the national level, the stance of both the parties on the no-confidence issue is the same.

In Andhra Pradesh, the ruling YSR Congress, main opposition Telugu Desam Party are fighting BJP. But at the national level, both the parties have offered support to the Union government, while opposing the move of no-confidence motion moved by other opposition parties.

Although the BRS has been officially maintaining equidistance from the BJP and the Congress, it became inevitable for BRS to join opposition parties in moving the no-confidence motion against the Union cabinet.The BRS, instead of moving individually the no- confidence motion, could have abstained in Parliament during the voting. In such a scenario, BRS would have indirectly helped the ruling BJP at the Centre.

In such eventuality, the Congress party in the state would have started a campaign against the BRS that it is the ‘B team’ of BJP. Since BRS has moved the no- confidence motion against the Union cabinet in Parliament, the Congress no longer has a chance to criticise BRS. At the same time, the BJP also cannot criticise the BRS, though it had moved the no-confidence motion against their government at the Centre.

The BJP cannot criticise the BRS that it had colluded with Congress since the BRS moved the no-confidence motion separately.

The move of BRS in the no-confidence motion issue proved that it is politically maintaining equidistance from BJP and Congress. It has also established that it is not ready to join hands with the Congress.

In Telangana State, both Congress and BJP are main political rivals of the ruling BRS. At the national level also, the BRS is maintaining the same stance.

But in Andhra Pradesh, the ruling YSR Congress, opposition parties TDP and BJP are fighting with one another in the state. But at the national level, the respective stance of three parties is the same.
