New Delhi: Fresh videos in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s security breach case indicate major lapses and reckless handling of the visit by the Punjab law enforcement machinery.

A day after the lapse, several videos have surfaced on different platforms which suggest how protesters mobilised themselves with the aim of blocking Prime Minister’s cavalcade in route to the venue of the rally.

In a video posted on Facebook, BKU (Krantikari) leader Surjit Singh Phool can also be seen congratulating the protesters for blocking the PM’s convoy and forcing him to return.

In another video, an activist with the BKU (Krantikari) could be purportedly heard lauding members of his organisation for blocking the Prime Minister’s cavalcade indicating a planning for the act.
In another such video a protester standing atop a bus said that it’s due to the strength of the protesters that PM Modi could not take out the rally.

Calling the incident ‘gravest in Indian history’, 27 IPS officers, in a letter to President Ramnath Kovind, also pointed out the lapses on part of the state police at various stages.

“The videos on television channels and in the print media clearly show that no Senior Police Officer was present on the spot. Rather surprisingly the police officials instead of making efforts to remove the so called protestors, were only enjoying tea, which betrays their intentions,” they said in the letter.

Several videos have been circulated wherein the supporters of the Prime Minister were stopped midway before reaching the venue. Supporters were also seen arguing with the police for failing to provide them a safe passage to the venue of the rally.

In one of the videos, BJP supporters were found asking the Punjab police, “Had there been a Rahul Gandhi rally, would you have made similar arrangements.”

Meanwhile, the issue of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s security breach in Punjab was raised during the Cabinet meeting today and anguished members expressed concerns over the lapse, sources said.
