SPG bill passed in Parliament amid walk-out by Congress

Dec 03, 2019 18:47 IST

Parliament on Tuesday passed the bill amending the SPG Act, paving the way for SPG cover only for Prime Minister and his immediate family members at his official residence, as the Rajya Sabha approved the measure by a voice vote amid a walk-out by Congress members. In his reply to the discussion on the amendment bill, Home Minister Amit Shah said earlier four amendments were done keeping one family in mind but this time it has not been done keeping any family in the mind. Congress leader BK Hariprasad demanded that the bill be withdrawn and noted that the Gandhi family had made the biggest sacrifice for the nation and hence their security should not be compromised.
