Itanagar, April 11, 2019:

In a shocking revelation during election time, the Congress party has alleged serious breach in security in Rahul Gandhi’s security cover as a laser, possibly from a sniper rifle, was allegedly pointed at the Congress President at Amethi.

In a letter to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) the party claimed that a green laser, potentially belonging to a sniper rifle, was pointed at RaGa while he was attending a media interaction on Wednesday. The Congress leader is a Special Protection Group (SPG) protectee.

“We urge you to immediately take note of this grave and unacceptable security threat as also the security lapse in the security of the Congress President. This is also an alarming lapse on part of the UP administration which is responsible for the peripheral security”, the Congress letter signed by Ahmed Patel, Jairam Ramesh, and Randeep Singh Surjewala said.

It may be mentioned that Rahul Gandhi filed his nomination papers for Amethi on Wednesday and he earlier attended a rally with sister Priyanka Gandhi.
