Capt slams Centre after Gandhis lose SPG cover


Capt slams Centre after Gandhis lose SPG cover

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, November 8

Condemning the withdrawal of SPG cover of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Rahul and Priyanka, Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has demanded immediate revocation of the Central government’s ‘politically motivated’ decision.

Reacting to the announcement, the CM urged the Central government to reconsider its decision, particularly in view of the security scenario currently prevailing in the country, with the terror threat from across the border growing every day.

By withdrawing the SPG cover of the Congress president, as well as MP Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, the Central government had showed extreme pettiness and a total disregard for the safety of a family that had made huge sacrifices for the country, the Chief Minister said.

Recalling the SPG withdrawal of former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh a few months ago, the Chief MInister said neither decision was based on ground reality. The reason given for SPG withdrawal of the Gandhis clearly endorsed this, he said, citing reports indicating that the security review that led to the latest decision had found that the Gandhi family “did not cooperate and impeded smooth functioning of SPG by not using the security on several occasions.”
