Shivchandra further said that his taking escorts are only for security purpose. He pointed out that previous Congress government followed more VIP culture than BJP.

He said that BJP government is new and has recently come to the state. It was during the time of Congress government that Framework Agreement was signed and now they are barking behind BJP’s ears asking for another chance, he added.
He also assured that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has assured that the state integrity will be protected by the Indian government and state’s integrity will always be protected.
