Are Telangana police deliberately ignoring the threats to Telangana PCC President Revanth Reddy? Is the police careless in providing security for the leader?
Yes, is the answer from the Congress cadre going by the recent incidents that took place in the Congress public meetings. In recent public meetings, Revanth Reddy has been facing serious embarrassment on the stage while the police are being criticized for not even paying attention.
Into details, the political scenario in the state changed after the Congress high command appointed Revanth Reddy as Telangana Congress president. Not only did his craze exponentially increase but according to the sources, the threat for his increased as well.
The police have been facing allegations for turning a blind eye on Revanth’s security despite hundred of fans and party followers thronging at the public meetings. From the outset, Congress leaders have criticized the government and the police for neglecting the security of Revant Reddy.
It can be recollected that Revant Reddy approached the High Court seeking to beef up the security for him during the last assembly elections. The state government which provided 4 + 4 security for some years with following the orders of the High Court, later withdrew it. The TRS government was also alleged for not review the security offered to Revanth after becoming an MP.
The issue agains assumed significance after Revanth was made the president of the state unit. Congress cadre has been demanding that the government should increase Revanth Reddy’s personal security and security at public meetings as well.
