By Vicky

The Union Home Ministry has denied allegations that National Security Advisor, Ajit Doval was present at a BJP political meeting in New Delhi. The clarification came after the CPI(M) urged the Election Commission of India to order an inquiry into the matter.

It was alleged that Doval was part of an election meeting of the BJP to discuss the upcoming elections in Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland. The CPI(M) had said that the presence of the NSA was shocking and amounted to serious misconduct.

The Home Ministry in a statement said, "there is a well-established practice of HM holding regular morning meetings to review National Security and Public Order. These meetings are attended by senior members of the Internal Security establishment".

The NSA was part of another meeting held at the Home Minister's residence. "As per this practice, such a meeting was held on January 14, 2018, at HM residence which was attended by the regular members of the group including the NSA. These officials didn't participate in any other meeting at HM residence on that day," the Home Ministry further clarified.
