Firozpur/Chandigarh, 6th January 2022: Due to a major lapse in the security of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while going for a rally in Punjab’s frontier district, Firozpur, the PM had to return to Delhi after canceling the rally.

The Punjab government has handed over the investigation to former Punjab and Haryana High Court judge Justice Mehtab Singh Gill and Additional Chief Secretary Home Department Anurag Agarwal. The report has been sought from the committee within three days.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had reached Bathinda by plane at 11 am on Wednesday. He was welcomed by Finance Minister Manpreet Badal on behalf of the Punjab Government. The Prime Minister was to reach Hussainiwala by helicopter from Bathinda airport to visit the National Martyrs Memorial, but the helicopter could not take off due to bad weather. Due to this, the convoy of the Prime Minister had left for Firozpur by road.

Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi expressed regret over the blocking of the Prime Minister’s convoy and ordered a probe into the entire development. It was to reach Firozpur from Bathinda via Bajakhana, Kotkapura, Faridkot.

The Prime Minister’s convoy was stopped on the way about eight kilometers before Firozpur, about 100 kilometers from Bathinda. Some farmers were already on strike at this place, located about 30 km from Hussainiwala on the Indo-Pak border, and when they came to know that the Prime Minister’s convoy could come through this route, they called more people.

The police had information that the Prime Minister was going to come from here, but by the time the Prime Minister’s convoy reached there, a large number of people had gathered there. The Punjab Police tried to remove them but they kept on raising slogans. During this, the Prime Minister’s convoy was forced to stay on the flyover for twenty minutes. After that instead of going to the rally venue, the Prime Minister’s convoy went back to Bathinda. Prime Minister Modi left for Delhi from Bathinda airport at around 3 pm.

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) says, “we are taking cognizance of this serious security lapse and have sought a detailed report from the state government. The state government has also been asked to fix the responsibility of this lapse and take strict action.”

BJP National President JP Nadda tweeted “when an attempt was made to talk to Chief Minister Channi in this context, neither the phone was spoken nor steps were taken to solve the problem.”

The Union Minister Meenakshi Lekhi said “That the Prime Minister left for Firozpur by road only after clearance from the DGP. He questioned how the protesters came to know about the route of the Prime Minister?”

The foundation stone of projects worth Rs 42,750 crore was to be laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi from Firozpur. In which PGI satellite centre at Firozpur, medical colleges to be built in Hoshiarpur and Kapurthala, Delhi-Amritsar-Katra Expressway, Amritsar to Una four-lane road up-gradation project, Mukerian to Talwara new broad gauge railway line project are included. Due to the return of the Prime Minister, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya laid the foundation stone of these projects.
