"I do not have any prime ministerial ambitions. This post was offered to me twice in the past. I just want to develop Andhra," he said.
Mr Naidu sidestepped a question on whether the third front parties would take the support of the Congress should the need arise. He said, "Right now, I do not want to create any confusion".
He, however, launched a scathing attack at the BJP, calling it a "back door party".
"The BJP is only a back door party. It has a remote with which it controls its puppets,"Mr Naidu told a group of reporters at the conclusion of Mahanadu, the annual conclave of the TDP.
The TDP had formally quit the BJP-led NDA alliance over the central government's refusal to accord special status to Andhra Pradesh.
"The BJP declared that Karnataka is the gateway to South India. It is a bad statement. Now you want to enter through the back door. They should have realized it... They should have supported Andhra Pradesh," he said.
Mr Naidu said the BJP government had promised a special package for backward districts of Andhra Pradesh on the lines of the Bundelkhand region. But the saffron party cheated the people.
"The BJP government credited Rs 50 crore each for seven backward districts of Andhra Pradesh and after some time it debited the amount, saying the Prime Minister's Office did not approve it. This is their cooperative federalism," he said.
