Under Section 14 of the SPG Act, the state government is obliged to follow the protocol prescribed by the SPG during the program of the PM.

In the case of a lapse in the security of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Punjab, the Central Government is preparing to take action on the Punjab Police under the SPG Act. According to sources, under the provisions of the SPG Act, the central government can summon the responsible officers to Delhi and necessary action can also be taken against them.

According to a report published in the Indian Express, a government source has been quoted as saying that whatever happened in Punjab on Wednesday is a violation of the SPG Act. Because the State Government failed to get the protocols laid down under the SPG to be followed. Under Section 14 of the SPG Act, the State Government is bound to provide all assistance to the SPG during the program of the PM.

His convoy was then allegedly attacked by Trinamool Congress workers. After this, the Center had summoned three IPS officers to Delhi on central deputation. These three officers were the security in charge of Nadda. However, all the three officers remained in Bengal as they were not relieved by the Mamata Banerjee government. After this, the Ministry of Home Affairs had summoned the Chief Secretary and the DGP of the state to report the entire matter and called them to Delhi for a meeting. However, neither the report was sent to Delhi from the state nor the officials attended the meeting in Delhi. The state said in this matter that it is investigating it itself.
