Don’t hold impromptu road shows, SPG advise PM Modi after Maoist threat

New Delhi | The Special Protection Guard (SPG) on Saturday advised Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to hold impromptu road shows after the Pune police revealed a plot by Maoists to assassinate Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a “Rajiv Gandhi-type incident” during one of his roadshows.

According to sources, the SPG has sensitized its personnel about the latest threat. It has even altered the Close Protection Group or CPG – the innermost cordon that moves with the prime minister along with the quick response team known as Counter Assault Team or CAT.

SPG officials are worried as there have been several incidents in the past when PM Modi has broke his security protocol. According to SPG sources after the parade, PM Modi refused to sit in his car and headed towards the spectators to greet them. The SPG was taken aback but moved along the PM as he waved to the crowds.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that “Security of the Prime Minister is the top priority. Maoists are fighting a lost battle. The Maoist insurgency has considerably come down.”

Earlier on Thursday, the Pune Police informed the Court that during the arrest of five activists in the Bhima Koregaon case, the Police seized a letter stating “Modi-led Hindu fascism is bulldozing its way into the lives of indigenous Adivasis. In spite of big defeats like Bihar and West Bengal, Modi has successfully established BJP government in more than 15 states. If this pace continues, then it would mean immense trouble for the party on all fronts. Greater suppression of dissent and more brutal form of Misson 2016 (OGH).”
