After the opposition leader on Friday told his cadres that his life was in danger as conspiracies were hatched to get rid of him by ‘regressive quarters’, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) assured himself and people of appropriate security arrangements for him.
In a press statement issued on the date of Saturday, MoHA Joint-Secretary Krishna Prasad Devkota also asked Dahal to let the government know about the information that the latter reportedly received about the security threat to him and its source.
“The government is very cautious about security sensitiveness of a former prime minister who is also the leader of main opposition party,” Devkota said, “he has been provided with high-level security arrangements even now.”
If needed, the government is prepared to boost security arrangements for him, assured the official.
The top Maoist had said he was tipped off about a plot to finish him off on Friday morning.
