Nitish had sought for ‘Z’ plus security even five months before attack on his convoy!

PATNA: The Centre has granted ‘Z’ plus security to Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar.

Currently, the chief minister has been getting security from Special Security Group, developed on the pattern of Special Protection Group (SPG).

SPG is an armed force of the Union for providing proximate security to the Prime Minister of India and former Prime Minister of India and members of their immediate families wherever they are.

Although the order for Z plus security to the chief minister was issued on January 15 in the aftermath of attack on his convoy by angry Dalit villagers in Buxur district earlier this month, a request to this effect had made on August 01, 2017 itself—well just four days after Kumar had formed his new government with the BJP after walking out of the erstwhile ruling Grand Alliance.

Bihar opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav hit at the chief minister for making a volte face.

“Till few days back he (Nitish Kumar) was preaching on security but he himself sought for Z+ security. There must be a research on his about-turns,” Tejashwi tweeted today.
