On the 13th of January, the Central Government, cancelled the National Security Guard (NSG) also known as Black Cat commando to Nara Chandrababu Naidu, the President of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP.)
The NSG security is an elite security protecting VIPs since two decades and are applicable only to the high profile figures in India.
