Navjot Sidhu Gets Increased Security Cover, Bullet-Proof Vehicle after threats from Hindutva Terrorists

Months after he publicly snubbed his cabinet colleague Navjot Singh Sidhu for hugging Pakistan army chief Qamar Javed Bajwa during the swearing-in ceremony of Imran Khan as prime minister in August last year, chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh has sent Sidhu a bullet-proof Toyota Land Cruiser from his own fleet.This week, the CM has sent Sidhu a bullet-proof Toyota Land Cruiser from his own fleet. The move comes after the home department headed by the CM enhanced Sidhu’s security cover to ‘Z Plus’ category.State home secretary NS Kalsi has also written to Union home secretary Rajiv Gauba on January 3 that the Punjab minister be provided the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) cover, preferably by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF). The National Security Guards (NSG) and the CISF provide security cover to all VVIP protectees in the country.
“The threat perception to Sidhu has increased significantly after his visit to Pakistan to attend the swearing-in of Imran Khan as PM, where he hugged their army chief. He was also threatened by Dera Sauda Rapist ram rahim followers in July 2018 for speaking against their head and the Hindu Yuva Vahini, a right-wing Hindu Terrorist outfit from Uttar Pradesh, too has announced a bounty of Rs 1 crore for his head for his connections with Pakistan,” reads the letter written by Kalsi.
