Hour after it was reported that the security of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's house was breached, her husband Robert Vadra on Tuesday hit out at the central government and held the Modi-led govt accountable for failing provide security to the women of the country.
In a Facebook Post Vadra wrote: Its not about the security for Priyanka, my daughter and son or me or the Gandhi family.. It's about keeping our citizens especially the women of our country, Safe and feeling Secure.
"If we are not safe in our own country, our homes, not safe on roads, not safe in the day or not at night, where and when are we safe?" Vadra added.
According to reports, there was a security breach at Priyanka's Lodhi Estate home last week with unknown persons barging in and asking for selfies yesterday, adding that her office has taken up the matter with the CRPF.
The Centre last month replaced the SPG (Special Protection Group) cover of the family of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, assassinated by LTTE terrorists on May 21, 1991, with 'Z-plus' security provided by the Central Reserve Police Force.
Under Z-plus security, they are being protected by CRPF commandos in close proximity besides guards at their homes and where ever they travel in the country.
