Along with the deputy CMs, the Z-plus security cover was also accorded to BJP’s Lok Sabha MP Rajiv Pratap Rudy.

The decision was taken after the department reviewed the threat levels of various VIP protectees in the state, the notification added.

According to sources, Z-plus security cover is the highest level of security provided by the government.

Under the Z-plus security covers, a dedicated team of trained personnel armed with sophisticated firearms guard the VIP concerned.
