Chandigarh, January 7 - Haryana Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal said that there has been a major security lapse during the visit of Prime Minister, Sh. Narendra Modi to Punjab. However, It is the job of the State Government to maintain law and order in the State. Whenever there is an issue regarding security, the information in this regard is usually with the police and administration there. Such a grave lapse in the Prime Minister’s security is complete negligence. The Prime Minister is not the common man but the representative of 130 crore people of the country. The Chief Minister was responding to the questions of mediapersons during a press conference at Haryana Niwas on Friday.

Raising questions on the arrangement of Punjab Police, the Chief Minister said that whenever the Prime Minister is going for any programme the arrangements for alternate routes are made by the local police and administration in advance. He said that the Prime Minister's helicopter was not utilised due to poor weather conditions, but the police gave him clearance to go via the road. Meanwhile, the sudden blocking of the road by the farmers cannot happen without it being in the knowledge of the police.

The Chief Minister said that the Ministry of Home Affairs has constituted a committee in this regard and the Supreme Court has taken up the matter. Thus, soon everything will be crystal clear. The Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal also raised questions on the Chief Minister of Punjab. He said that he himself and Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi were linked through video conferencing to the programme in which the Prime Minister was to go. During the programme, Sh. Channi was seen coming and going time and again in the video. There was a tense atmosphere and Sh. Channi looked restless.
