No Special Protection Group cover to Sonia Gandhi family

The Union government has decided to withdraw the Special Protection Group (SPG) cover for Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her children — Member of Parliament Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra — and replace it with ‘Z plus’ security cover of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).

The SPG, an elite force comprising 3,000 personnel, will now provide security only to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
