After the ‘snooping’ controversy broke over undertaking the exercise on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, the PM Narendra Modi government today hinted at changing the procedure of conducting security profiling of political leaders.

“Police are following this proforma since 1957. So, according to the requirement, changes can be done,” Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju told reporters here after Congress’ protests against the incident in both Houses of Parliament.

Official sources said the Home Ministry is likely to review the the methodology adopted to conduct the security profiling of political leaders.

Unwanted questions may be removed from the proforma and new relevant questions can be added, sources said.

Besides, in case of MPs, the secretariats of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha could be taken into confidence while doing the procedure with regards to Parliamentarians, sources said.

The Home Ministry is expected to convene a meeting to review the process of conducting the security profiling of political leaders and take appropriate decisions, sources said.

Opposition parties in Parliament today vociferously protested the “snooping” on Rahul Gandhi, with the government dismissing their contention saying they were making a “mountain out of what is not even a molehill.

The issue was highlighted in the wake of the visit of a Delhi Police officer to the residence of Rahul Gandhi for doing his security profiling.
