SPG commandos guarding Modi asked to maintain `distance`
Zee Media Bureau/Deepak Nagpal
New Delhi: The alleged bugging of Union Minister Nitin Gadkari`s house seems to have forced others, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to exercise caution.
A report in a Hindi daily claimed on Wednesday that Special Protection Group personnel, who are entrusted with protecting the prime minister, have been asked to maintain `distance` from him.
The newspaper reported that instructions have been issued to SPG commandos so as to ensure no secret talks are overheard by them.
The decision could have been provoked by an incident that took place some years back, wherein one of the SPG personnel used to listen to a former prime minister`s private talk and pass on the same to others.
BJP leaders are reported to be happy at the development, as they would now be able to talk freely with the PM on sensitive matters.
