With the recent expose wherein it was suggested that Prime Minister Narendra Modi may have threat to his life from leftist extremists, the Union Home Ministry has now tightened the security of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The threat is now being perceived from the Maoists and Pakistan-backed terror groups.
According to reports, the Home Ministry has also issued new guidelines to the state governments as well.
The state governments have been directed to take all requisite measures to protect the Prime Minister whenever he arrives on a visit.
While this may sound unprecedented, it is also being speculated that from now on even the ministers and senior officers without security clearance will not be allowed to come close to the Prime Minister.
The meeting at Rajnath Singh’s residence was called in the wake of alleged assassination threat from Maoism to PM Modi.
The SIT later told the local court on June 7 that they had seized a ‘letter’ from the house of a Delhi resident Rona Wilson – one of the five people arrested on June 6 for having alleged Maoist ‘links’ – which mentioned about a plan of the ultras mulling “Rajiv Gandhi-type incident”.>
