After recent reports of BJP government to provide Arnab Goswamy a ‘Y’ Security after threat from Pakistani terrorist, people on social media are not happy with the decision. Former judge of Supreme Court has lashed out on the government’s decision.
Katju attacked govt, and wrote that Arnab is surely getting a huge salary from his employer. Why should he not pay for his security from his own pocket.
Katju in his Facebook post stated that, “Why should Arnab Goswamy be provided Govt. security, and that too of the Y category, which means 20 guards will be with him day and night.”
“Who will pay the salaries of these guards? It will be the government, which really means the public because these salaries come from the taxes we pay. So we will have to pay for Arnab’s security,” his status further stated.
“Arnab is surely getting a huge salary from his employer. Why should he not pay for his security from his own pocket? There are many private security agencies, which provide armed guards. Why did Arnab not hire them? Or else his employer, which is a very affluent business house, could have done so I believe some other media persons who toe the government line have also been provided similar security by the Govt. Is this not deplorable? Must the public for these hired ‘tattoos’ and buffoons?” he said.
