Guidelines on VVIP security not new: Home Ministry
New Delhi, June 27 (IANS) The Home Ministry on Wednesday said that the guidelines issued by it concerning the security of VVIPs were not new and do not contain any specific reference to ministers or other dignitaries.
The Ministry said in a press note that no new restrictions have been added through these guidelines and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and only the laid down protocols have been reiterated.
The clarification came in the wake of media reports that new stringent guidelines had been issued concerning Prime Minister Narendra Modi's security and that state governments had been apprised of tighter security measures including prior clearance for Ministers to enter the Prime Minister's proximate detail during his travels.
