AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday said that he does not want a 'Z' category security that was provided to him, but he wanted to live with freedom, as an 'A' category citizen. The Hyderabad MP was awarded 'Z' category security after shots were fired at his car near Delhi. It said that the Centre reviewed the security of the AIMIM leader and decided to accord 'Z' category security of the CRPF with immediate effect, according to sources.
Addressing the Lok Sabha on Friday, Owaisi said,“I request you to see what they said about me in Haridwar, Mathura, you have the IB report on that. I am not afraid of dying but I want to appeal to the government to see what was said. I don't want Z security, I want to live with freedom and not a stifled life but I want to be an ‘A-category’ citizen.”
Owaisi also demanded UAPA on the shooters, saying "I reject the Z category security but I demand UAPA on those people so that this kind of radicalization can be stopped."
