The Centre had scaled down RJD boss Lalu Prasad Yadav’s ‘Z+’ VIP security cover of NSG commandos after a recent review. The RJD chief will now be guarded by an armed commando squad of the Central Reserve Police Force.
When questioned about Centre’s decision of scaling down his father ‘Z+’ security cover, Tej Pratap made an objectionable statement about the prime minister.
The ‘Z’ cover of Union minister Haribhai P Chaudhary has also been scaled down to ‘Y+’, entailing less manpower and other paraphernalia, they said.
The minister of state for coal and mines was accorded the larger security cover of central security forces commandos when he was minister of state for home.
