Another detail has emerged from the Punjab government's report on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's security lapse, which was handed to the Punjab Home Ministry. According to reports, the Punjab government stated in the report that the Bathinda SSP accused Firozpur SSP of abusing his authority. He permitted demonstrators under his jurisdiction to follow PM Modi's path.
According to the story, the farmers' protest came out of nowhere. An FIR has been filed in the case, and a panel has been formed to investigate the lapse. The report's sequence of events has also been shared with the Punjab administration.
After Prime Minister Narendra Modi's security was compromised in Punjab on January 5, the Union Home Ministry requested a report from the Punjab administration on the situation. On Thursday night, the Punjab government forwarded its report to the Union Home Ministry. According to reports, the Chief Secretary of Punjab has filed a report detailing the circumstances surrounding PM Modi's security breach.
This report was written after speaking with senior personnel involved in PM security in Ferozepur, according to the information. According to sources, the story claims that protests against the PM's visit occurred across Punjab. Additional security troops were deployed in anticipation of protests and demonstrations.
Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi has denied that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's security has been compromised. I'm sorry PM Modi had to return during his visit to Ferozepur district, he remarked. We hold our Prime Minister in high regard. If there is any breach in the Prime Minister's security, we will investigate it.
In his statement, CM Channi further stated that our country has a democratic system. I was also supposed to meet with PM Modi, but I was unable to do so due to a positive Corona test, so I gave the task of greeting the Prime Minister to Finance Minister Manpreet Badal and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa.
PM Modi arrived in Bathinda, Punjab, on January 5. He had to take a helicopter from here to the National Martyrs Memorial in Hussainiwala. However, due to poor lighting and rain, PM Modi was forced to wait an additional 20 minutes. However, because the weather did not improve, he decided to drive to the National Martyrs Memorial. This journey was scheduled to take 2 hours. PM Modi traveled by road after receiving assurances from the Punjab DGP about security measures.
When PM Modi's convoy reached the flyover, about 30 km before the National Martyrs Memorial, some protesters blocked the way here. Due to this, PM Modi's convoy had to stop on the flyover for 15-20 minutes. This is being considered a big lapse in the security of the PM.
