Telangana govt has withdrawn security escort given earlier to the TDP Telengana leader and MLA Erraballi Dayakar Rao from Warangal in view of extremist threat perceptions to him.
Vexed over the T govt move the TDP leader Erraballi has rejected eve the government offer of two gunmen provided to him during and after the general elections. ‘It is an vindictive move of TRS led Telangana govt’ said Dayakar Rao adding that TDP leaders and active workers had become sitting ducks of political attack in the districts as a result of such lack of security.
It is reliably learnt that the Telangana police has withdrawn security escorts to many congress and TDP senior leaders of Warangal, Nalgonda, Mahbubnagar and Karimnagar on the basis of an security expert committee report. ‘Of the 41 political leaders including former ministers, security threat continued for hardly 23 persons and hence withdrawal of escorts etc’ said a senior police official in the VVIP security wing.
