Former AP CM Chandrababu Naidu 'Forced' to Abandon Convoy, Undergo Frisking at Vijayawada Airport:- Former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and now the leader of opposition N. Chandrababu Naidu had to undergo frisking like any other common man at Gannavaram Airport late on Friday.
Naidu was also denied VIP access to the aircraft and had to travel in the bus along with common passengers. The security staff at the airport reportedly didn't allow his convoy up to the aircraft. Naidu was asked to get off and undergo the regular process of checking.
A security guard was seen frisking Naidu at the security entrance.
The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief was also not allowed to reach the aircraft in VIP vehicle.
The incident drew a strong reaction from TDP, which alleged that Bharatiya Janata Party and YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) were resorting to witch-hunting.
TDP leader and former state Home Minister Chinna Rajappa said the attitude of authorities was not only insulting but they also compromised on Naidu's security as he enjoys "Z plus' category security.
He said Naidu never had to face this situation though he was in opposition for many years.
He demanded the central and state governments ensure proper security to Naidu.
