Narendra Modi already has NSG cover: RPN Singh
The central government provides security to people as per threat perception and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi already has National Security Guard (NSG) cover, Minister of State for Home Affairs R.P.N. Singh said Wednesday.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has demanded more security for Modi who is their prime ministerial candidate.
Singh said, "MHA will give full security as per the threat perception."
He said Modi has already been provided NSG cover and he also gets extra security during programmes like rallies.
The BJP Tuesday demanded the central government take all necessary steps to provide adequate security to Modi following Oct 27 serial blasts in Patna that left six dead and over 80 injured.
