    Manmohan turned back from Parliament gates

    New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was not allowed to pass through the Parliament House compound one day in August because of a turf war between Delhi police and Parliament Security Staff. The incident took place on August 18 when the Prime Minister was returning after an Iftaar party at BJP MP Shahnawaj Hussain's residence. Official sources said the Prime Minister had gone straight from Parliament to the MP's residence to avoid inconvenience to general public but while returning home, he found the gates of the Parliament House complex were closed. When officials checked with Parliament Security they were curtly told that since no information about the PM's movement was given to them in advance, the convoy could not be allowed to pass through, the sources said. They said it is a standard practice to close all the gates of Parliament at eight in evening. The PM's security immediately took a different route to reach the 7, Race Course residence of the Prime Minister. The incident was reported to Home Ministry by the Delhi police which did not like the way PM's motorcade was turned back from the gates of Parliament creating an alleged security risk to the VVIP, sources said.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
