Formation of a panel to probe (bjp target congress)
PM Modi’s visit to Punjab on January 5 was put on hold as he was stuck on the flyover for 20 minutes due to the blockade by the protesters. After a security lapse, PM Modi’s convoy decided to return without attending an event at a martyr’s memorial in Hussainiwala. The Prime Minister could not even attend a rally in Ferozepur. Channi has insisted that there is no threat to Modi. The Congress has suggested that the decision to curtail the Prime Minister’s visit was due to his alleged low attendance at the rally. The Supreme Court has constituted a panel to probe the entire incident. ( bjp target congress)
