The security has been beefed up at the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly after explosive powder, Pentaerythritol Tetranitrate (PETN), was found inside the assembly yesterday.
The entry has been prohibited to those who do not have the Assembly pass.
Everyone entering the secretariat is being thoroughly checked. According to the members if the same security lines were being followed since the beginning then nothing like yesterday would have happened. Earlier, no passes were asked to show.
