The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief had on Monday moved the high court after Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy decided to reduce the security cover provided to Naidu, his son Nara Lokesh, and other family members.

The court then asked the government to file an affidavit on security deployment and posted the matter for further hearing on July 9.
