Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma performed Rudra Yagya on Thursday (January 6) at Ugratara temple in Guwahati for the wellbeing of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
"Along with Bhabesh Kalita and colleagues joined Rudra Yagya at Ugratara temple for the long life of Adarniya PM Narendra Modi ji. A man who is tirelessly working for Maa Bharti with blessings of a billion people can't be harmed by unscrupulous elements," Sarma said in a tweet.
Earlier on Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Punjab's Ferozepur was called off, citing a major security lapse.
The PM was stuck on a flyover for 15-20 minutes due to the road being blocked by some protesters, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said in a statement. The MHA has taken cognisance of this serious security lapse and sought a detailed report from the state government.
The BJP has blamed the ruling Congress government for sabotaging PM's scheduled program and the major security lapse.
Former Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh has sought the resignation of Channi, saying that the Punjab government cannot provide smooth passage to the Prime Minister of the country and that too, just 10 kilometres from the Pakistan border. (ANI)
