The security cover of nearly 25 legislators of the MVA has either been removed or downgraded. Most MLAs are only covered under X category security protection. 

Just days after several leaders of the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) had their security cover removed, it was revealed that the Maharashtra government will continue to provide Y+ security to 41 MLAs and 10 MPs from the Eknath Shinde camp, reported the Indian Express. Most MLAs are only covered under X category security protection.

Under Y+ security, individuals will be guarded by four security personnel spread across two shifts and are also provided with a security vehicle. Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Governor BS Koshyari will enjoy the higher Z+ security cover and MNS Chief Raj Thackeray will get the Y+ cover as well.
The security cover is provided on the basis of a perceived threat after a review from senior officials and the police. This is the first security cover review after the Shinde government came to power. The Shinde-camp legislators have received Y+ security cover as they could be targeted by the members of the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena, a home department official told Indian Express.
