Elections 2022 Live Updates: BJP vs Congress on PM’s security breach, EC’s crucial meet with Health Ministry today
The breach in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s security which led to the cancellation of his rally in Punjab’s Ferozpur on Wednesday has led to a major political controversy. The Ministry of Home Affairs has claimed that despite having intelligence inputs about protesters, Punjab Police did not follow the ‘Blue Book’ and had not prepared a contingency route for Prime Minister’s visit. However, Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi has denied any security lapses and said the BJP cancelled the rally seeing the low turnout at the venue.
Meanwhile, Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan is scheduled to brief officials of Election Commission of India today over COVID-19 situation in the country. Niti Aayog Member (Health) Dr VK Paul will also attend the briefing. After a three-day visit to poll-bound Uttar Pradesh, the poll body had said that that the political parties of the state were in favour of holding the elections on time.
