Andhra Pradesh Politics is such that everything and anything has become politics. The other day, Former Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu visited the mortal remains of Superstar Krishna and paid rich tributes.
He spent some time with the family members and consoled them. In the pictures and videos there, Chandrababu Naidu is seen wearing shoes.
YCP’s social media wing is circulating the pictures saying that Chandrababu disrespected the departed soul. But then, this is wrong.
Chandrababu Naidu is a Z-category protectee and according to their manual, such a VIP should not leave his shoes in crowded places or events as there is a chance that something can be planted in them and attack the VIP with that.
In case, the VIP chose to leave the shoes. There is a separate and extensive protocol to sanitize them.
Implementing the protocol is extremely difficult when there is a huge crowd.
So, Chandrababu Naidu is not allowed by security to leave his footwear.
If Chandrababu visits some private place, he can always remove the footwear as security can sanitize it.
