With the State Assembly session, which is commencing on Monday, coinciding with the Hyderabad Liberation Day, a tight security cover is being thrown in and around the Assembly and places that lead to the Assembly for smooth conduct of the session.  Rallies, demonstrations and protest camps will not be allowed near the Assembly and other major junctions.

“As Hyderabad Liberation Day and Assembly session coincide tomorrow, and September 19 being Ganesh Chaturthi, we have deployed security forces in and around Assembly premises and other major junctions in the city. We will use traffic police CCTV footage installed in various places to keep track of unlawful activities,’’ said Tarun Joshi, DCP, Central Zone.

Three officers of ASP rank, 20 DSPs, 25 inspectors, 90 SIs and 500 constables were brought to the city from other places as additional forces. At least 20 platoons and other security forces, apart from the Central Zone police, will be deployed. “We will allow people to hoist flags and pay tributes to martyrs at the Gun Park and other other places on the occasion of Telangana Liberation Day but processions, rallies, dharnas and other protests will not be allowed during the Assembly session,’’ Joshi warned. There will be tight vigil near Ravindra Bharathi, Telugu Talli Flyover, Secretariat, Ambedkar statue, Tank Bund, GHMC office and Lakdikapul. Police requested organisers of Ganesh festival not to carry huge idols towards  Lakdikapul to prevent traffic snarls.
