Congress ex-leader Rana Sodhi gets ‘Z’ security after joining BJP

New Delhi, Dec 29, 2021 – Like in West Bengal, the Centre has accorded ‘Z’ category security cover to Punjab politician and former Congress leader Rana Gurmit Singh Sodhi after he joined the Bharatiya Janata Party recently.

Sodhi, who joined the BJP on December 21, will be getting this security cover both in Delhi and Punjab, to be provided by the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), sources in the security set up said here on Wednesday.

A four-time MLA who won the last Assembly elections from Guruhar Sarai, Sodhi is said to be close to former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh. He has already announced his resignation from the Congress on social media, where he posted his resignation letter addressed to interim Congress President Sonia Gandhi.

The Union government had provided central security cover to 79 BJP leaders in West Bengal including Trinamool turncoats and the new joinees during the West Bengal assembly elections in February-March this year. The VIP security of many of them was withdrawn immediately after they returned to the TMC.

The Central government withdrew the ‘Z’ category security of former West Bengal minister Rajib Banerjee on December 22, after he returned to the TMC fold following a brief stay in the BJP. Banerjee had contested the last West Bengal assembly elections on a BJP ticket from Domjur in Howrah district but lost to Trinamool Congress leader Kalyan Ghosh. He was accorded ‘Z’ category security in West Bengal and ‘Y’ category cover across India.  (Agency)
