The TDP has also alleged that BJP and YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) were resorting to witch-hunting while asserting that Leader of Opposition (LoP) in a state Assembly also comes with the benefits of a cabinet minister rank.

Former state Home Minister and TDP leader Chinna Rajappa said that the authorities have not only insulted the former CM but also compromised his security. He added that Naidu had never needed to face such a situation though he was in the opposition for many years. He also urged the central as well as the state government to ensure proper security for Naidu.
