As per the order, Mr. Reddy as the Special Representative would be accorded the status of a State guest. He would not be entitled to any other perks.
The TDP had filed complaints to the Speakers in the Assembly and the Lok Sabha asking them to initiate disqualification procedures against Mr. Reddy. “They have ulterior political motive. They are doing it out of political vendetta and for free publicity.”
