Meanwhile, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders were quick to pounce upon the opportunity to slam the Congress party.

Talking to Twitter, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra questioned the need to keep Priyanka Gandhi in loop regarding the Prime Minister's security.

He said: "A sitting Chief Minister briefs Priyanka Vadra on Prime Minister's security! Why? What constitutional post does Priyanka hold and who's she to be kept in loop regarding Prime Minister's security? Channi Saab... be truthful.. you must have said to her 'work is done... what you asked for, has been done'!"
