(New Delhi)Gandhi Family’s Security Cover Reduced From SPG to Z+
The government has withdrawn the Special Protection Group (SPG) cover of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her children Rahul and Priyanka, and they will now be given Z-plus security by the CRPF, officials said on Friday.
SPG cover was given to the family of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, who was assassinated by LTTE terrorists on May 21, 1991,
The Gandhis will be without SPG protection after 28 years. They were included in the VVIP security list following an amendment in September 1991 in the SPG Act of 1988.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will now be the only person being protected by the elite SPG commandos.
In August this year, the government withdrew the SPG cover of former prime minister Manmohan Singh.
The SPG Act, enacted by Parliament in 1988, was initially supposed to provide security to only the prime minister and former prime ministers of the country.

[Varanasi,UP] Babbar,Boosting Cong men, Shows Hopes for ‘Miracle’ in Favour of Party In UP
Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar today expressed hope that there will be a “miracle” in favour of his party in the upcoming assembly election in the state.
Babbar is here to take part in Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s road show in Varansi, the Lok Sabha constituency Prime Minister Narendra Modi represents.
Responding to questions from media persons if road shows and other programmes would help the party at the hustings, he said, “Rest assured…we are among the people…Sonia is here to have darshan and take blessings of Baba Vishwanath in this holy month of Shravan.”
This is the third major programme of the party in the past few days after “27 saal-UP behal” Delhi-Kanpur bus yatra and Rahul Gandhi’s interactive session with booth level workers in Lucknow.
Earlier, Smt Sonia arrived here to a rousing reception by party workers for a six-km-long road show.
Her cavalcade was accompanied by 5,000 strong contingent of motorcyclists from Lal Bahadur Shastri Babatpur airport to the circuit house.
Huge banners and buntings have been put up by party to make the roadshow successful and launch the poll campaign in the eastern region of the poll-bound state.
BJP did not fare very well in the eastern part of Uttar Pradesh in the last assembly election and Congress hopes to take advantage make inroads.
BJP, which swept the 2014 national election in the state winning 71 of its 80 Lok Sabha seats, hopes to extend that victory to the 2017 UP assembly elections.
