Newdelhi:8/8/17:Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi had violated the security protocol during his visit to Gujarat last week when he was attacked with a stone, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Tuesday.
Rajnath Singh told the Lok Sabha that Gujarat Police was informed about Gandhi’s visit two days before he travelled to the state.
“Rahul Gandhi is under SPG protection. The state police had made adequate arrangement for the visit. He was even provided a bullet-proof car. But he opted for a non-bullet proof vehicle. He should have listened to the advice of security personnel. But he did not,” he said.
The minister said some unknown person threw a stone at Gandhi’s car and the incident would not have occurred had the Congress leader used the vehicle the police had provided.
