“Rahul Gandhi did not listen to the area police or SPG officials and refused bulletproof car in Gujarat,” Singh said in the Lok Sabha.

Singh also added that Gandhi had not taken SPG protection on 6 foreign tours in the last two years.

“In the last two years, Rahul Gandhi was out for 72 days on 6 foreign tours but didn't take SPG cover. We want to know, where did he go? Why didn't he take SPG cover?,” ANI quoted Singh as saying in the Lok Sabha.



He was responding to allegations by Congress members that Gandhi could have been killed in Gujarat where stones were pelted on his car last week.
