Ajmer: After security at the house of Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi was allegedly breached her husband Robert Vadra said that security is given on the basis of threat perception and the “new security” provided at her house lacked the high-level training possessed by SPG forces.
7 people had arrived in an SUV and entered Priyanka’s residence without any security check. “Giving security is not a fad, it is given on threat perception. That’s why SPG security was provided. Now when you implement another level of security, obviously they do not have that kind of training and level of understanding. Yes, an SUV came to our house in which seven people were sitting,” Vadra said.
“They saw Priyanka was in a meeting. She was called outside and they took photos. They were themselves astounded as they were allowed to enter without any security check”.
I had just visited the Ajmer dargah for Jiyarat as I am on a similar religious journey across the country.
Cooperating with agencies, not fleeing India, says Vadra
Businessman Robert Vadra on Tuesday said that he has nothing to hide and is cooperating with agencies probing cases against him. “Baseless allegations are levelled against me. Whenever any agency calls me for interrogation, I cooperate with them on every step. I give whatever documents they ask for, I am a responsible citizen of India and believe in the law,” Vadra told ANI. Enforcement Directorate (ED) is investigating the case related to alleged money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property worth 1.9 million pounds. Vadra, the son-in-law of Congress party president Sonia Gandhi, dispelled speculations that he might be trying to flee the country to escape the ED net. “No question of me trying to escape to any other country, I am cooperating at every level”. Vadra added.
SPG should not have been removed: Vadra on security breach
After a complaint was filed with the CRPF regarding an alleged security breach at the residence of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, her husband Robert Vadra on Tuesday said that the SPG cover should not have been removed. “There was a serious lapse in security. SPG should not have been removed”. Vadra also said that we first have to think about the security of women in the country. “I would lay most importance on this. We have to see that people have fear of the law, and there should be speedy judgement. Our security comes after the security of women in the country,” he added. According to sources, unknown people had entered the premises of the Congress leader last week in an SUV without any prior appointment and then sought selfies with Gandhi.
