The Congress today said the Allahabad incident, which saw some youth managing to reach near Rahul Gandhi’s helicopter, was a serious breach of security and demanded a high-level probe into it.
“The manner in which some youths managed to reach near Gandhi’s chopper yesterday, we consider this as a major breach of security,” UP Congress Legislature Party leader Pramod Tiwari told reporters here.
He said the party had written a letter to the Chief Minister demanding a high-level probe into the incident and action against the guilty.
“The state government repeatedly says it is not informed about Gandhi’s programmes but this time not only the information was given but also security rehearsals were carried out,” Tiwari said.
“Stern action should be taken against the culprits so that such incidents are not repeated in future,” he said.
On alleged thrashing of youth by Congress leaders, Tiwari said it was a human reaction.
“Our concern was the security of the leader,” he said.
