On Friday, senior advocate Maninder Singh, appearing from petitioner’s side argued in the top court that the breach in the Prime Minister’s security is not an issue of the state subject or law and order, and fails Special Protection Groups (SPG) Act.

“The issue of Prime Minister’s protection is a national security issue and comes under parliamentary purview,” Singh further added.

Singh also asserted that the Punjab government failed to carry out their responsibilities in providing security to the country’s Prime Minster even after receiving all data about PM Modi’s arrival.

Many leaders from the Bharatiya Janata Party have targeted the Congress led Punjab Government, alleging details of PM Modi’s route were shared with the leaders, but then they shared it with unauthorized parties, which led to the blockade.

Though the protesters have denied all the above mentioned allegations and have reiterated they knew nothing about PM Modi’s convoy coming through the flyover for the Ferozepur poll rally.
