"I am a person of the people and this does not affect my travel (schedules) to meet people," he said.

“I have no complaints. If something happens to me, it's the state government's fault, ”he said.
Sudhir Mungantiwar said he was given security because of the Naxal threat.
“I thank the government for withdrawing my security coverage. This means the Naxal threat does not exist. Our goal of making the voice of the people stand out will be stronger, ”he said.
