TDP Chief alleges 'scaling down' of security

Written by: Staff

Hyderabad, Sep 12 (UNI) Telugu Desam Party President N Chandrababu Naidu today termed as 'unfortunate' the alleged scaling down of security for him by the Andhra Pradesh Government.

''I am very sad that the Congress Government is creating a needless controversy over my security'', Mr Naidu, against whom the naxalites had made an unsuccessful attempt at Alipiri on the Tirumala hills in 2003, told a press conference here.

Refusing to believe Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy's denial of any knowledge about reduction of security, Mr Naidu said he did not think the decision was taken without the former's knowledge.

He questioned how 'quality' security could be provided to him by replacing Greyhounds police with local police.

Stating that it was the responsibility of the government to provide full security for him, he said ''we are not permitted to have private security''.

This was not the first time the government was allegedly taking his security 'lightly', he claimed adding that accommodation had not been provided for about one year for the National Security Guards (NSG).
