‘Z’ security for Swamy across India


1 September 2014 10:14 am - 12     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Indian government has accorded BJP leader Subramanian Swamy Z-category security under the central protectee list. Till now, Swamy enjoyed Z-category security in Tamil Nadu only, but now his security cover has been extended all over India.

“Swamy will get around 40 CRPF commandos as a Z-category protectee,” said a home ministry official requesting anonymity.

A few months back, after the NDA came to power, Swamy had written to the Union home ministry seeking enhanced security cover, citing threats from several quarters.

In 2011 as well, Swamy had asked the then UPA government for enhancing his security citing the 2G spectrum scam case in which he was vigorously involved. But the government hadn’t agreed to his demand.

Swamy is now in the forefront of National Herald case against Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul Gandhi.

“Initially Swamy was given security in Chennai due to a threat from Sri Lankan terror outfit Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. But now with LTTE totally decimated, Swamy’s threat comes mainly from his political activities, therefore his security cover has been enhanced,” said the home ministry official (Hindustan Times)

    What points do you have to prove yourself right? Or else you just want to attack Dr. Swamy because he is against Tamil racists in Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka?
