Delhi on high alert after Manipur MP’s car hit parliament barricade ahead of tabling of Citizenship Amendment Bill in Rajya Sabha

The car, according to news reports, belongs to Congress MP Dr Thokchom Meinya. The security siren was set off after his car got stuck at the security barricade. The MP was not in the car when the incident took place.

The security personnel took to their positions as soon as the siren was set off to thwart any threats. This was in accordance with the standard procedure, established after the 2001 attack on the parliament.


In the video being shared on social media platforms, security personnel are being seen desperately trying to take positions in anticipation of hostile situation.

The incident took place on a day when the Rajya Sabha will see the tabling of the controversial Citizenship Amendment Bill. Ahead of the development, curfew has been imposed in Manipur, which too has witnessed a series of protests against Bill. Authorities have also banned the mobile internet service for five days in a bid to stop the spread of protests in the state.

Of course, security measures have to be enforced? What if it was your terrorist father and brothers trying to blow up Parliament? Maybe you were not yet born during the 2001 attack on Parliament. That's why you underplay the situation. Moreover, isn't the entire NE against CAB, which ran out of time the same day the car rammed the barricades? Idiots like you make our country "great".
