The President expressed his concerns about the serious lapse," tweeted the Rashtrapati Bhavan handle after the meeting.

Modi's convoy faced a serious security breach in Punjab on Wednesday as it was stranded on a flyover on the outskirts of rally venue with protestors jamming the road for almost 20 minutes. Modi had abandoned the plan to fly to the rally venue due to inclement weather and had taken the road from Bhatinda.

The incident has created a lot of political upheaval.
