New Congress leader Nagam Janardhan Reddy heaved a sigh of relief as the High Court passed interim orders directing the state government to reinstate his security detail.
Reddy filed a petition in the High Court against the state government's decision to withdraw his personal security guards. After perusing the petition on Thursday, the High Court passed the order and directed the state government to give an explanation for why it had removed security for him. The court then adjourned the case to Monday for further trial.
For the uninitiated, Reddy had filed a petition urging the High Court to direct the state government to reinstate his 1+1 security after the government had removed his gunmen a few days back. He also mentioned in his petition that he had a threat to his life from civil contractors as he had filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the High Court alleging that there was corruption in the works of the Palamuru-Rangareddy Lift Irrigation Scheme.
