MHA provides ‘Z’ category security to Rajib Banerjee
Former TMC MLA Rajib Banerjee who joined the BJP recently was given ‘Z’-category security by the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA). Banerjee has also been provided with ‘Y+’ category security across the country.
Rajib Banerjee joined the BJP on Saturday (January 30). Along with him, four other TMC leaders including Baishali Dalmiya, Rathin Chakraborty, Prabir Ghosh, and Rudranil Ghosh also joined the BJP.
According to sources, the MHA will also provide extra security to the four former TMC leaders.
Notably, Rajib Banerjee is the second turncoat leader after Suvendu Adhikari to get ‘Z’ category security post-defection to the BJP.
The Home Ministry provided the said category of security to Rajib Banerjee after he alleged that TMC workers held an agitation in his Domjur constituency.
The security cover provided to Rajib Banerjee comes after vehicles of BJP leaders JP Nadda and Kailash Vijayvargiya’s convoys were attacked in Bengal in December last year.
