He also urged a series of security measures for the country's largest assembly, which included a ban on mobile phones in the house. In what could have been a major security threat, a packet of explosives was discovered from the Assembly premises on 12 July, which were later confirmed to be a powerful explosive Pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN), India Today reported.

Employees undertaking cleaning work in the assembly stumbled upon the packet and handedit to security staff, the chief minister said, adding that the contents have since been handed over to the forensic lab for testing. "I suggest that everybody present in the Assembly should be investigated by the police and that the NIA should investigate into the matter", said the CM.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has called for a high-level emergency meeting on Friday and CCTV footage of the Assembly is being looked into.

"This is PETN, a highly explosive substance was found in the Assembly". On all the gates QRT of Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC) will be deployed and whole body scanners will be installed.

The FSL test revealed that the powder was a unsafe plastic explosive PETN (Pentaerythritol tetranitrate).

He appealed to Speaker Hriday Narain Dixit to ensure police verification of the assembly staff because security of over 500 MLAs and MLCs was at stake. Due to its plastic structure, this white powder can pass metal detectors and security checks.

The small quantities of this explosive can cause enormous damages.

PETN is the least stable of the common military explosives.

Very hard-to-detect plastic-based explosive PETN was used in September 2011 Delhi High Court blast.

Yogi has also assured protection to the devotees, who participate in thousands in the one-month religious event, Saavan.
