Congress can’t be forgiven for security lapses during PM Punjab visit: Rajnath Singh


Addressing the security lapses, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said, “The Prime Minister of India is not a person, he is an institution. Everyone should be respectful of this institution.”

Questioning the credibility of the congress party, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, addressed a public rally in Uttarakhand on Thursday where he asked if the Congress party should be forgiven for “severe lapses” during Prime Minister Narendra Modi visit to Punjab. 

The Defence Minister stated that because the Prime Minister is a key representative of the country, security failures in his security must be taken seriously.

“In Punjab, there were lapses in the Prime Minister’s security,” said Rajnath Singh during ‘Vijay Sankalp Yatra’. “Yet the Congress is talking nonsense. The Prime Minister is a representative of the country; such lapses in his security are a serious matter.”

Pointing out to a public gathering, Rajnath Singh says, “I want to ask you whether Congress should be forgiven for this.”

He further added,“In a democracy, if such an institution becomes weak, it means that the democracy is on the way towards destruction.”

To address the alleged security lapses during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the state on Wednesday, the Punjab Government of India has formed a two-membered high-level committee. According to an official release issued by the Punjab chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi’s office, the panel would include Justice (Retd.) Mehtab Singh Gill and Anurag Verma, the principal secretary of home affairs and justice. 

“This was a major lapse in the security of the Prime Minister,” read a statement issued by the home ministry. “The Prime Minister’s schedule and travel plan were communicated well in advance to the Punjab government. As per procedure, they have to make necessary arrangements for logistics, security as well as keep a contingency plan ready.”

According to the senior official, the MHA has requested a thorough report from intelligence agencies on the deployment, picket, rooftop deployment, barriers, and other security measures taken by Punjab Police during the Prime Minister’s visit.
