As regards to the threat to the life of Rahul Gandhi, government will take all possible precautions that this threat does not materialize," he told reporters accompanying him on his return from a two-nation trip to Russia and China.

He was asked about Gandhi's statement on Wednesday that he could be eliminated like his grandmother Indira Gandhi and father Rajiv Gandhi.
