New Delhi: The Delhi Police held a meeting at the Congress office in the national capital on Friday and promised to beef up security for MP Rahul Gandhi during the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
Congress’s Delhi state president Anil Chaudhary and other representatives of Rahul Gandhi were present in the meeting with the Delhi Police officials which lasted for one and a half hours. According to the Congress, a special team of Delhi Police will now run around Rahul Gandhi during the Bharat Jodo Yatra as there will be a strong blockade around him that no unauthorized person will be allowed to enter.
The police action came after the Congress wrote a letter to Home Minister Amit Shah about the ‘poor security arrangements’ during the Bharat Jodo Yatra. Also filed a complaint against the Haryana police personnel in Sohna.

After the complaint of Congress, the Delhi Police said that now a strong cordon will be placed around Rahul Gandhi and his security will be tightened further.
Referring to the massive crowd that gathered near Rahul Gandhi during the Bharat Jodo Yatra on December 24, the party recently released a video accusing the Delhi Police of security lapses.
Party organization general secretary KC Venugopal had also written a letter to Home Minister Amit Shah demanding adequate security arrangements.
However, the Central Security Forces and the Delhi Police denied any security lapses and instead accused Rahul Gandhi of violating security protocols.
The Congress leader has violated security guidelines 113 times since 2020, including during the Delhi leg of the ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) said on Thursday.
