Jaipur: A Rajasthan MLA on Tuesday alleged that a "criminal" entered Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje's official residence and got a photo clicked with her, but the government saw nothing wrong in it.

National People's Party chief Kirodi Lal Meena during Zero Hour said: "A hardcore criminal with 28 cases registered against him had entered the official residence of Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje to congratulate her on roll back of power tariff hike and was even seen in a photograph with her."

He was apparently referring to criminal Hari Ram Jat, who allegedly threatened an Independent MLA of dire consequences recently.

"A criminal along with his 50 aides entered the chief ministers house. Is not it a failure of the government. Is government protecting such notorious criminals?" he asked.

Interrupting, state Parliamentary Affairs Minister Rajendra Rathore said: "Raje is a prominent personality and a public figure. If someone takes a picture with her that does not mean that the government is protecting them."

Meena said the matter concerns the chief ministers security. "How can a criminal enter CM House without security check," he asked.

State Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria said: "In the era of selfies, anyone can click a photograph with public figures. But if any criminal had entered the chief ministers house, then we will get the matter probed."

The government is concerned about safety and security of peoples representatives, he said.

The state government has always taken prompt action on such matters. Be it security issue raised by MLA Hanuman Beniwal or Manoj Kumar, we have asked the authorities concerned to act swiftly, the minister said.
