Prime Minister Narendra Modi's recent Punjab visit which remained a failed trip gave birth to a big political war. The issue made many heads turn. The way the farmers barged onto the way the Prime Minister's convoy was going and stopping the convoy made many heads turn.



Adding fuel to the issue, the Union government and the Punjab government had started a blame game against each other, holding the other side responsible for the massive security breach.

The sensational issue had even reached the Supreme Court. Hearing a petition the Apex Court issued directives to the concerned officials to collect the documents that deal with the Prime Minister's visit to Punjab.

The issue had caught everyone's attention and raised many questions in everyone's mind. The security lapse took place when the farmers reached the Pyarayana flyover and stopped the Prime Minister's convoy for around 20 minutes.

As the debate on who should take the responsibility for the infamous issue, a special team from the Home Ministry reached Punjab to probe the issue, and the personnel was reportedly questioned by them.

The officials who were handed over the responsibility to take care of the security of the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the day of his Punjab visit were asked to appear before the special team to face a few questions. The report on the outcome of the questioning is awaited.

However, the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) ruled states have targeted the Congress party over the issue to put the responsibility on the Punjab wing of Congress which is ruling in the state.

However, the Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Channi said that the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) is indulging in the process to project the issue in a bad light to see that the President's rule is imposed in Punjab.

While a few fingers were pointed out at the special security agency Special Protection Group (SPG) over the security breach of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's convoy as the agency was handed over the responsibility of the Prime Minister's security. However, we can get more clarity on who has to take the responsibility after the investigation report is out. So let us wait.
