Following a alleged threat from the Indian Mujahideen militant group to RIL Chairman Mukesh Ambani, the Union Home Ministry approved a 'Z’ category VIP security for the business tycoon.
Under the ‘Z’ category security, Ambani will have a pilot and follow-on vehicles with commandos armed with sophisticated weapons. The industrialist will be given proximate security wherever he goes in India.
But, most people on Twitter did not seem too happy with the news and criticised the government's action. They said that while the government increased Ambani's security, they are still unable to provide security to the women in the country.
Doston, an ye saari partiyaan kewal Ambani ko security dengi. Aapko rape hone ke liye chhod dengi. Kya aap gha baithe rahenge?

Z security to Mukesh Ambani? Such a rich man can't hire his own security guards. And no media had the courage to question this?

Some pointed out that a Z category security to Mukesh Ambani would mean a tax burden on the common man.
I pay my society maintenance that takes care of my security. I also pay my taxes that pays the crpf to protect mukesh ambani. #goodindian

And of course, the jokes on IPL and brother Anil...
At least politicians can claim they're serving the country. Mukesh Ambani gets Z cover security for what? Making too much money?

Mukesh Ambani requests for Z security. The way Mumbai Indians are performing, we knew this was coming.#IPL

Good of the government to provide Mukesh Ambani Z plus security cover. Didn't know Anil was so competitive and violent.
