Khamanon - 8 October 2013
National Secretary BJP Kisan Morcha and prabhari Himacha pradesh sought an increase in Narendra Modi security cover, while underlining that the Gujarat Chief Minister's security is the responsibility of the Central government. He said that a series of small bombs killed six people ahead of a rally led by Modi in Patna on October 27, raising his security concerns. Addressing to a press conference at Khamanon mandi, today Grewal underlined that given it is election season, his BJP party would hold a number of rallies. He said that it is responsibility of the Centre to arrange for security. Grewal accused the Centre of taking the issue of Narendra Modi security lightly. Referring to Patna blasts he said it was unfortunate that even today the Bihar Government doesn't admit the security lapses. He said security for the BJP rallies is being compromised despite the fact the party's rallies are getting huge response. Grewal said that Narendra Modi is on the target of terrorists and the Centre Government knows this adding no politics should be played over the security of the BJP party PM nominee. Accusing Bihar Government of negligence in security, he claimed the venue of Narendra Modi Patna rally was not sanitised and no frisking was done to ensure security. Grewal pointed out that recovery of bombs from Gandhi Maidan and at Ranchi prove the well connected network of terrorist is present in Bihar Pradesh, had the leaders and audience not acted with exemplary restraint in Patna, there would've been a stampede. Grewal said that Centre Government should be insure whatever happened in Patna should not be repeated in any other state of Country.
