Thank you for protecting me and my family: Rahul Gandhi

Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday thanked all the personnel of the Special Protection Group (SPG) for dedicatedly protecting him and his family for years and said it was 'journey' filled with 'affection and learning'.

'A big thank you to all my brothers & sisters in the SPG who worked tirelessly to protect me & my family over the years. Thank you for your dedication, your constant support & for a journey filled with affection & learning. It has been a privilege. All the best for a great future,' Congress leader said in a tweet

The Gandhi family will now be provided with CRPF Z-plus cover instead. They will be without SPG protection for the first time in 28 years. The family was included in the VVIP security list following an amendment in September 1991 in the SPG Act of 1988.
