Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday underlined the seriousness of the incident related to the lapse in Parliament security and expressed confidence that corrective steps will be taken to ensure that no such lapse occurs in future. Sources said Modi made the remarks during a meeting with Speaker Om Birla and leaders of various political parties after the Lok Sabha proceedings were adjourned sine die. During this, he also mentioned the incident of a citizen sitting among the MLAs in the Congress-ruled Karnataka Assembly. According to sources, Modi said that such a huge security lapse never got prominence. In July, during the presentation of the budget in the Karnataka Assembly by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, a man entered the House and managed to sit on the MLA’s chair for some time before his identity was revealed.

What did PM Modi say on the lapse in security of Parliament?

The Center has said that the security of Parliament is under the jurisdiction of the Lok Sabha Secretariat and whatever guidelines come from the Speaker, it will implement them. In a recent interview, Modi had said that the seriousness of the incident of breach in security of Parliament should not be underestimated at all. He also advised that everyone should avoid debate or resistance on such topics. His comment was in the context of the opposition’s opposition in both the houses. Modi and leaders of some other political parties met Speaker Om Birla in a ceremonial meeting. The Prime Minister and leaders of various political parties usually visit the Speaker after the end of each session. Suspended opposition members stayed away from the meeting due to the ruckus over the lapse in security of Parliament.

Many leaders were present in the meeting

Apart from Union Ministers Rajnath Singh and Prahlad Joshi, other leaders including Bhartrihari Mahtab of Biju Janata Dal (BJD) and Rahul Shewale of Shiv Sena were present in the meeting. Although Shiv Sena is an ally of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Biju Janata Dal maintains a neutral stance and has been supporting the government in major decisions. The proceedings of the Lok Sabha were adjourned sine die on Thursday, a day before the scheduled period. In this session, the Lok Sabha also approved the Indian Civil Code (BNS) Bill, 2023, the Indian Civil Defense (BNSS) Bill, 2023 and the Indian Evidence (BS) Bill, 2023. These three bills have been brought to replace the Indian Penal Code (IPC), 1860, Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), 1898 and the Indian Evidence Act, 1872.
