They sought enhancement in security for TPCC president N. Uttam Kumar Reddy to Z category security with a bulletproof car and an escort.

Apart from Uttam Kumar Reddy who is the face of the Congress in the state in upcoming elections and a senior leader from the party, Congress has also demanded increase in security for their Campaigning Committee Chairman Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka and Ex MLA Komatireddy Venkat Reddy.
