Telugu Desam Party (TDP) Polit Buro member Zahid Ali Khan on Tuesday threatened to resign if party president N. Chandrababu Naidu forged an alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Mr. Khan, who is also editor the Urdu daily Siasat , met Mr. Naidu and made his displeasure clear about the TDP coming close to the BJP. “I will be the first person to resign,” Mr. Khan said while addressing a programme here. In this connection he cited the example set by former Minister Basheeruddin Babukhan, who resigned from TDP, for not withdrawing support to the NDA government.
