New Delhi: A day after a security breach during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Punjab visit, Union Minister Anurag Thakur on Thursday said (January 6) that he believes that the country's judicial system gives justice to all.
"There was a big lapse in the security of the Prime Minister yesterday in Punjab. On this matter, some people have gone to the Supreme Court. The Home Ministry has also sought a report. The judicial system of the country gives justice to all," the Union Minister said when asked about the Punjab government allegedly denying charges of lapse in security.
Notably, the Punjab government on Thursday constituted a high-level committee to investigate lapses during PM Modi's visit to Ferozepur. The Committee would comprise Justice (Retd.) Mehtab Singh Gill, Principal Secretary (Home Affairs) and Justice Anurag Verma and would submit its report within three days, the state government led by Congress has said.
According to sources, all ministers expressed anguish and concern over the security lapse during the cabinet meeting.
The Prime Minister was stuck atop a flyover for 15- 20 minutes while on his way to Ferozepur, Punjab, on Wednesday due to the road being blocked by some protesters. The Union Health Ministry termed it a "major lapse" in his security. (ANI)
