New Delhi : YSR Congress chief Jaganmohan Reddy on Monday met BJP Narendra Modi, and offered to give ‘issue-based support’ to his government.

Asked if his party, which has nine MPs, would join the National Democratic Alliance, Reddy said: “BJP does not require the support of any political party. The fact is that they already have 282 MPs and they don’t need the support of any of us.”

“Andhra Pradesh wants him (Modi),” he said, adding that his party would extend “issue-based” support to the NDA government.

The YSR Congress chief also submitted a memorandum to Modi, asking him to ensure the promises made for Andhra Pradesh and Telangana are fulfilled.

He said that his party would extend “issue-based” support to the NDA government. Jagan also gave a representation to Modi on the issue of division of Andhra Pradesh. He appealed to the prime minister-designate to provide funds liberally for building a new capital for Seemandhra as it has been promised in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act.
