The security breach of Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Farmers blocked a flyover in Punjab on January 5, causing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cavalcade to stall for almost 20 minutes. The Prime Minister was travelling to Ferozepur to lay the foundation stone for a number of development projects worth over Rs 42,750 crore and address the public.

A huge security breach occurred when private automobiles were spotted approaching the cavalcade. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on the other hand, cancelled his trip to Ferozepur and returned to Delhi. 

The Punjab government, according to the MHA, failed to deploy appropriate security to safeguard the safety of any road traffic. According to reports, the Punjab Police guided the demonstrators to the overpass where the PM’s convoy was due to pass.
