Ludhiana, March 19: Leader of Opposition in Punjab Assembly and AAP MLA HS Phoolka said party MLAs would accept bare minimum security which was required to discharge duties as MLA.
“Our MLAs will have maximum of four security guards, two for security at the official residence and two will remain with the MLA throughout the day. Besides, our MLAs will also accept the official residence and car which is also required to fulfil day-to-day political obligations. However, we will not use beacon or hooter on our official cars to discourage the VIP culture,” Phoolka said.
On being asked how many security guards an MLA is entitled to, Phoolka said he had no idea of it and would have to get it checked. He, however, added that even Manpreet Badal had accepted minimum security comprising six guards.
