Mumbai, Nov 5: Ahead of US President Barack Obama's India visit on Nov 6, the minute security scrutiny irritated several politicians like Maharashtra CM Ashok Chavan and his deputy Chhagan Bhujbal and for that they may boycott Obama.

The US Consul General Paul Folmsbee reportedly demanded personal details like birth date, nationality, passport number and PAN card number.

"How can they ask for such minute identity details," questioned Bhujbal and also stated that on Nov 5, he with CM Chavan would take decision on the meeting with Obama.

Many top Maharashtra politicians and bureaucrats may also skip the high profile meet for the over security reason. Maharashtra Home Minister RR Patil and Home Secretary have already declined to attend an event graced by President Obama.
