New Delhi: Amidst ongoing Vivekananda Yatra of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi ahead of state assembly polls due by the end of this year, the Intelligence Bureau has cautioned the state government about safety of the Chief Minister. In its input, the IB has said that 4-5 terrorists, believed to be associated with Pakistan’s Lashkar-e-Taiba, have entered in Gujarat with a motive to attack the Chief Minister.
Intelligence Bureau (IB) has issued an alert to Gujarat government suspecting a terror attack in the state.
   
Modi’s “Vivekanand  Yatra” aimed at wooing the young voters, will be reaching a village of Narsari district today. Chief Minister Modi enjoys a Z-plus security cover but Reserved Police Force personnel have also been deployed at the venue for the safety of the Chief Minister. Chetak commandos are also there to foil any bid of the terrorists to create disturbances during the Yatra after the IB alert. IB had warned that Modi can be a possible target during his election campaign as the terrorist organization Lashkar is preparing for the past one month to target the Chief Minister.
 
Given the upheaval in Libya, Egypt and other countries of the Arab world these days over a controversial film, intelligence agencies are suspecting the possibility of terrorist attacks in Gujarat. The Intelligence agencies had earlier warned the administration to tighten the security of the Chief Minister.
 
Gujarat is to see state assembly elections in a couple of months and the Chief Minister is holding “Vivekananda Rath Yatra” starting from Mehsana district. The Yatra is especially focused at wooing young voters.
