NEW DELHI: Bharatiya Janata Party general secretary Arun Jaitley’s security cover has been withdrawn. The UPA government came to a conclusion that there was no threat perception and withdrew the security posted at his residence, A-44 Kailash Colony.
The withdrawal of security coincided with his attacks on the UPA government almost on a daily basis in the wake of the Volcker and Quattrocchi issues.
The two personal security officers provided by the government were also withdrawn, but were subsequently restored to him. Jaitley had Z-plus security when he was handling Kashmir affairs and home ministry during the NDA regime.
It was subsequently downgraded to Z-Y category.
