Sukhpal Singh Khaira comments on Badal family who already have z+ security with 1000 men want more,while there’s no security for 2.80 cr Punjabis.
Its pertinent to mention that The Shiromani Akali Dal-led government in Punjab has put the Centre in a fix over a request to upgrade the security cover for three important members of the state’s ruling “first family” — the Badals.
The problem is how to go from the highest security, which is Z-Plus, for the country’s VIPs to the next level. For, chief minister Parkash Singh Badal, his son and deputy chief minister, Sukhbir Badal, and a key minister, Bikram Singh Majithia, are already getting Z-Plus security.
Revenue minister Majithia is the brother-in-law of Sukhbir Badal.
A central government official said the request came last week and the Union home ministry has not been able to decide what security upgrade can be granted to someone getting the highest cover already.
