The angry state government has now shot off a letter to the centre, registering its protest over the “acts of SPG”.

“The letter states it was beyond the mandate of the SPG and in violation of the blue book that lays down the security protocol for VVIPs including the prime minister,” the NDTV has reported quoting sources.

The NDTV report also says the state government is further upset at the way senior police and administrative officials were questioned by SPG, which they feel amount to interference in the work and overstepping their jurisdiction.

This was not the lobe embarrassment for the chief minister. Later in the day on Saturday, the Prime Minister himself rejected Kumar’s demand for granting central university status to Patna University taking no notice of his passionate appeal in the presence of intellectuals, his own party leaders and students.
