Priyanka Gandhi’s ‘security breach’: Occupants of the car long time Congress loyalists, woman fought elections on Congress ticket

While the security was indeed lapse in allowing the the car to enter Priyanka Gandhi's residence without any security-check, the possibility that the occupants' membership of the Congress party contributed to the lapse in security cannot be rejected entirely.

Hours after Congress targeted the BJP Government over the alleged security breach at Priyanka Gandhi’s residence and put the blame on removal of SPG security cover, it has been revealed that the people involved are, in fact, long-time Congress loyalists.


The owner of the car, Chandrashekhar Tyagi, told Times Now that they are loyalists of the Congress party and went to seek some time for themselves from Priyanka Gandhi whose responsibilities within the Congress party have increased manifold in recent times. She is also considered by some as the potential successor to interim president Sonia Gandhi.

Furthermore, one of the occupants of the car is reportedly a woman member of the Congress party and has even contested elections on the party’s ticket. Thus, while the security was indeed lapse in allowing the the car to enter Priyanka Gandhi’s residence without any security-check, the possibility that the occupants’ membership of the Congress party contributed to the lapse in security cannot be rejected entirely.

It also raises questions on whether the entire controversy was created on purpose by the Congress party in order to target the government over their decision to remove the Nehru-Gandhi Parivar’s security cover. Times Now has also revealed that the occupants personally talked to Priyanka Gandhi’s personal assistant two days prior to the incident and they were summoned to her residence. As Times Now correctly points out, the fact that the occupants of the car had contact details of Priyanka Gandhi’s personal assistant shows that people close to Priyanka Gandhi were well acquainted with them.


The only thing that remains to be investigated now is why was the car not checked by the men charged with Priyanka Gandhi’s security. Was it because they were told not to check the particular car by Priyanka Gandhi or her close associates? Or was it a consequence of a lapse in security? Such questions remain unanswered. However, the Congress party’s charge at the government appears to be on thin ice at the moment.
