Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s convoy was stuck for 15-20 minutes on Wednesday due to a road blockade in Punjab, a major security lapse during his visit to poll-bound Punjab. Following the major security breach, badminton star Saina Nehwal spoke out against the incident, saying that a country cannot claim to be safe if its own Prime Minister’s security is jeopardised. She also denounced what she called “anarchists'” “cowardly attack” on Modi.

About two years ago, Nehwal joined the BJP. She had praised Prime Minister Modi and the BJP, saying that they had done “a lot of good” for the country. She also stated that she would do her part to improve India’s sporting conditions.

The Prime Minister was travelling by road because the weather prevented him from flying to Ferozepur, where he was to lay the foundation stone for projects worth over Rs.42,750 crore, including the Delhi-Amritsar-Katra Expressway, four-lanes of the Amritsar-Una section, Mukerian-Talwara New Broad Gauge railway line, PGI Satellite Centre at Ferozepur, and two medical colleges in Kapurthala and Hoshiarpur. On the stage in Ferozepur, an announcement was made that his visit had been postponed “due to some reasons,” without elaborating on the security lapse.

According to reports, 400-500 BKU Krantikari (Phool) protesters sat on the flyover near village Piareana in the Ghall Khurd tehsil of Ferozepur district. The farmers’ union is affiliated with the Samyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM), which led the year-long demonstrations against the now-repealed farm laws on Delhi’s outskirts. The protest was reportedly staged to prevent BJP supporters from attending a planned rally in Ferozepur, where the Prime Minister was scheduled to speak.

In a series of tweets, the Congress party expressed strong opposition to the Prime Minister’s visit to Punjab. Two photos with the caption “Go back Modi” were embedded, demanding an apology for the deaths of farm protestors last year. Taking note of this serious security lapse, the Ministry of Home Affairs has requested a detailed report from the state government. The Punjab government has also been asked to accept responsibility for the omission and to take appropriate action.
