"Singh continued to ask for security but it was not provided to him. Congress and its alliance partner RLD have carried out the attack out of frustration," he said.

The BJP has also demanded strict action against them. Singh is pitted against RLD chief Ajit Singh in a fierce combat in the constituency.
