The Government will provide foolproof security to BJP leader LK Advani in the wake of threat perception to him, Congress said on Tuesday.
"The fact that the National Security Adviser communicated threat perception to the BJP shows how responsible and responsive we are," AICC Media Department Chairman M Veerappa Moily told reporters.
Moily said the BJP should not play politics with the issue of security and added that the Government will not hesitate to provide foolproof security to Advani.
"We will definitely inform our Union Home Minister also to see that the security is strengthened as far as Advaniji is concerned. It is definitely the duty of the state government and also the Central government to provide all necessary security packages," he said.
Advani's Sankalp Yatra was in trouble in view of increased threat perception to him and the Government's advice to him to take care.
A rethinking on the programme is being undertaken after Narayanan met Advani.
Narayanan told him about the threat of a suicide attack and advised him to keep his appearance at public places like rallies to the minimum for about a month.
