Minister for Fisheries, Youth Empowerment and Sports Pramod Madhwaraj has sought additional security cover for himself from the Home Department because of the forthcoming Assembly elections.

Replying to queries from mediapersons here on Wednesday, Mr. Madhwaraj said that he had written to the State Home Department seeking security in the view of the Assembly polls. He did not want to take any chances and wanted to protect himself from what he said “any mishaps”. He had not given any reasons for seeking additional security and had sought it purely as a precautionary measure. He had written such a letter for the first time, he said.

He said that he did not know what steps had been taken by the Home Department in response to his letter. He had so far not received any response from the department. It was up to the government to decide what form of security it wanted to provide him, Mr. Madhwaraj said.
