Sindujaa D N
The recent incidents involving cm Jagan, including the sandal-throwing incident in Anantapur and the subsequent stone-pelting incident, have caused a stir across the state. While the sandal incident was largely overlooked, it seems to have set a precedent for further attacks. Despite the challenges of securing high-profile figures like cm Jagan, known for his direct engagement with the public, the lack of adequate security measures has left him vulnerable to such incidents.

The recent attacks raise questions about the underlying sentiments among the people and the effectiveness of security arrangements. cm Jagan's extensive tour across the state has garnered positive responses from the public, but it has also exposed him to potential risks. The incidents underscore the need for heightened vigilance and proactive measures to ensure the safety of public figures, especially during election campaigns.

The failure to address the Sandal incident promptly may have emboldened those with malicious intent, leading to the subsequent stone-pelting incident. The apparent indifference of the police in addressing such security threats is a cause for concern and raises doubts about their ability to handle similar situations in the future. As such incidents continue to unfold, there is a growing sense of uncertainty about the safety of political leaders and the overall security landscape in the state.
