SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to fly in a single-engine seaplane and asked why security guidelines were relaxed for the Prime Minister.
Abdullah took to micro-blogging site Twitter to question the Prime Minister over the mockery of security guidelines. Abdullah said that the VVIPs are not permitted to fly in such aircrafts.
“How is it that the security guidelines were relaxed for this flight? No Z protectee is allowed to fly in a single-engine aircraft, much less the PM of our country,” Abdullah tweeted.
He also questioned the decision to have a foreign pilot flying the seaplane when such tasks are usually carried out by Indian Air Force pilots. “Single engine plane. Foreign pilots. Is there any security guideline that will not be thrown out today?” he tweeted.
