Rebellious YSRCP MP from Narasapuram parliamentary constituency Kanumuru Raghurama Krishnam Raju finally got the protection from central security forces.
The Union home ministry has issued orders providing “Y” category security to Raghurama Raju following his representation that he is facing threat from the YSR Congress party MLAs and cadre in Andhra Pradesh and as such, he was not in a position to go to his constituency.
Y category security is provided to high-risk individuals including politicians, police and the government functionaries. A person falling under this category is provided security with as many as 11 security personnel, including 1 or 2 commandos and police personnel.
Expressing thanks to the Centre for conceding his request, the YSRC MP said the Union home ministry took the decision only after verifying the facts mentioned in his letter and assessing the situation on the ground.
Raju said he would visit his constituency very soon.
“Right now, there is a complete lockdown in Narasapuram because of Covid-19 intensity. I will speak to the district collector and after the curfew is lifted, I will definitely go to the constituency to meet the people,” he said.
