A no-confidence motion can be accepted only if it has the support of at least 50 members in the House.
The Communist and Communist-Marxist parties, the Aam Aadmi, the Indian National Congress, the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and the Pan-Indian Muslims Assembly supported the proposal on Friday. The TDP and YSR Congress together had 25 MPs.
The Telugu Desam Party has been protesting for weeks demanding special category status for Andhra Pradesh.
"We go according to principles".
TDP had also planned to move a motion of no-confidence today in the Lok Sabha, but the Speaker adjourned the House until Monday.
Andhra Pradesh's ruling party had on Thursday offered to back the Yuvajana Shramika Rythu Congress' no-confidence motion but has now said it withdraws the support as it smells a nexus between it and the Bharatiya Janata Party.
"We have no confidence in their no-confidence motion, so we have made a decision to go on our own", he said.
BJP leader GVL Narasimha Rao said, "We believe TDP is finding the going tough in Andhra Pradesh". The motion had the support of the YSR Congress, but needed support of other opposition parties.
Two of TDP's MPs - Ashok Gajapathi Raju and YS Choudhary - were in the Narendra Modi Cabinet from 2014 until earlier this month, when they stepped down from the Council of Ministers after the Centre refused to grant special status to the state of Andhra Pradesh, which had been "promised" to them earlier.
Meanwhile, the BJP said they were trying to regain lost ground.
The question is why chief minister Chandrababu Naidu took four years to realise the alliance with BJP is not working, he added.
