NEW DELHI, July 14 (Agencies): Samajwadi Party (SP) members today expressed shock over the recovery of an explosive material from the Uttar Pradesh Assembly.

"It is astonishing. How is it possible? Explosives reaching inside the House is a serious matter," said SP legislator Shailendra Yadav.

Leader of Opposition Ram Govind Chowhdury (SP) said the matter was serious and the security of the House should be taken care of.

"All of us are with the government in this matter. Those behind this incident should be exposed," he added.

While some members like Nitin Agarwal (SP) got to know about the development through media reports, others were seen updating their fellow legislators about it.

The House was later updated about the recovery of the explosive by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and a probe into the incident by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) was recommended unanimously.

A packet containing about 150 gms of a white powder was found by the cleaning staff in the Assembly on July 12.

The packet was found lying close to the chair of the Leader of Opposition.

The chief minister today told the House that forensic tests confirmed that the white powder was PETN (Pentaerythritol Tetranitrate), a dangerous plastic explosive preferred by militants as the colourless crystals easily surpass security checks.

- Quick Response Team (ORT) at every gate: "It's unfortunate that the largest Assembly of the country doesn't have a QRT,"CM had said while speaking in media. Now a proper QRT will be deployed at every gate of Vidhan Sabha.

- Police verification of all workers: "Everyone needs to be cautious related to security matters. Police verification needs to be done for all workers in Assembly," the UP CM said.

-ATS to be deployed inside Assembly: Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) team will be deployed inside the UP Assembly so that no such incident would take place in future.

-Full body and baggage scanner at six entry gates: Body scanner will be installed at entry gates of Uttar Pradesh Assembly and each legislator including worker and employee will go through it.

-Pradeshik Armed Constabulary (PAC): "There will be a Pradeshik Armed Constabulary (PAC) team at all eight gates of the Assembly," UP speaker said.

- Parking: Legislators/employees will be asked to park their vehicles at regular parking area.

-Passes to be cancelled: Passes of old vehicles will be cancelled.The speaker also said that each MLA will have to show pass, otherwise he or she will be denied entry in the premises.

No mobile phones inside the Assembly: During proceedings, lawmakers should not bring mobile phones but if they are carrying it the phone should be on silent mode. There should be a proper arrangement where bags and mobile phones are kept outside the house.
