Creating a security scare, a man carrying a bag ran parallel to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s convoy in Mysuru before being taken into custody.

As people lined up on both sides of the road, the man chanted “Modi, Modi” and came close to the motorcade when the Prime Minister was proceeding to Lalith Mahal Hotel, where he is staying overnight.

The incident happened near V V circle after Modi attended the birth centenary celebrations of Shivarathri Rajendra Mhaswamiji of Sri Suttur Math, according to police.

“A person, who was shouting Modi-Modi, was seen running parallel to the convoy of the Prime Minister. The local police have taken the man into custody and are inquiring,” DGP Om Prakash told .

Asked how serious the incident was as the person was carrying a bag, he said, “The Mysuru Police Commissioner is scrutinizing the footage, and if there is any suspicion on the person’s part, action would be taken.

“Asked about the content in the bag, he said “If there is something, local police will get in touch with me. For now, there is no such update from their side.”

In the sketchy footage of the incident caught on mobile camera and beamed by some TV channels, it appeared as if the man waiting on the road for the convoy came close to it, even as others stood on the footpaths.

As the word spread about the incident, activists of a group named “Modi Brigade” staged protests demanding action for the alleged security lapse.

Modi is on a two-day visit to Karnataka, as part of which he covered two engagements in Mysuru today.

Rahul Gandhi

Chennai: Most of the MPs and MLAs protesting at Jantar Mantar are from the Punjab unit of the Congress. When IANS spoke to Jasbir Singh Gill, Congress MP from Khadoor Sahib in Punjab, he said, “We met Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Friday and had a long chat. It seems that she wanted to appreciate the work we have done and for this reason she sent the food,” he said.

Priyanka sent paneer, rajma, rice, roti and gajrela for the protesting lawmakers. Jasbir Singh Gill also told IANS that most of the time they get food from local gurudwaras and sometimes from people’s homes. Congress lawmakers have been protesting against the three contentious farm laws for the last 52 days. Gill also said they would continue with the sit-in protests till the farm laws are withdrawn.

The farmers’ protest in Delhi has led to a standstill at the Singhu border where thousands of farmers continue to stay put. This is despite the Supreme Court announcing a four-member committee. This was the second public event attended by the Milan-returned Rahul Gandhi who first went to Tamil Nadu to attend the ‘Jallikattu’ event.
