Chandigarh, August 12

Former Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee chief and Rajya Sabha MP Shamsher Singh Dullo today said threat perception was not the criteria being adopted to provide security cover in the state. There was a need to rationalise the deployment, he said.

"Right from politicians to non-political persons, security cover has been provided by the state government more out of personal favour," alleged the MP, without naming the beneficiaries.

"At the cost of the families of traditional Congress men, who have sacrificed their lives during the militancy period, several non-political persons are enjoying security cover," claimed Dullo. There were cases where MLAs close to the Chief Minister were enjoying extra security cover at the cost of the state and there was no threat perception to them, he alleged.
