In a series of tweets, Shah also said that such a breach of security procedure during the Prime Minister’s visit is completely unacceptable and that the responsibility will be corrected.
âToday’s event hosted by Congress in Punjab is a trailer of how this party thinks and operates. The people’s repeated rejections have led them down the path of insanity. The highest echelons of Congress owe the Indian people an apology for this have done so, âhe said.
Shah said the Union Interior Ministry requested a detailed report on the security breach during Modi’s visit to the Punjab.
The prime minister, who was traveling by road to the Punjab on Wednesday, was stranded on an airlift for 15 to 20 minutes due to the blockade of some protesters, an incident the Union Interior Ministry described as a “major fault” in his security.
In a statement, the interior ministry said after the “major security flaw” during the prime minister’s trip to the Punjab, his convoy had decided to return.
The ministry also called on the government of Punjab to determine responsibility for the default and take strict action, the statement said.
The Prime Minister was traveling to the National Martyrs Memorial in Hussainiwala from Bathinda when the incident occurred.
