The party strongly condemns the politically motivated decision of the security review committee (SRC) and demands restoration of security to its original level, he said.
"Further, the YSRCP-led government stands responsible for any mishap to the above leaders due to the reduction in their cover," Rao said.
Rao further said the state police has found evidence that Naidu and his family members are still facing threat. The government has decided to reduce the security with "malified intentions and with a political motivation."
He also said extremists had recently gunned down MLA from Araku Assembly constituency Kidari Sarveswara Rao and another
leader Siveri Soma, which indicates their intention of harming political leaders.
Naidu had escaped assassination attempt by Maoists in Tirupati in 2003 when he was the chief minister of undivided Andhra Pradesh.
