Yesterday, Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Channi dialled Congress chief Sonia Gandhi as the party remains enmeshed in a major political face-off with the BJP over the incident.
The BJP has accused the Congress of engineering the security lapse along with the protesting farmers and the state police.
On Wednesday, while on way to address a political rally in Ferozepur, PM Modi was stuck on a flyover in Punjab’s Bathinda for around 20 minutes. The security lapse has caused a major political conflagration between the BJP and the state’s ruling Congress and the matter reached the Supreme Court.
The Chief Secretary has informed the Home Secretary that a police case has been filed and the state government has set up a committee to inquire into the incident and submit a report in three days.
