The police have cordoned off Palace Grounds, where Gujarat Chief Minister and BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is going address a mammoth rally on November 17.

Additional Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Kamal Panth stated that the Police Department has made a fool-proof three-fold security arrangement for Modi’s visit. According to him, 200 police personnel have already been deployed at the Palace Grounds scrutinising every nook and corner of the venue. Watch towers at the corners of the venue for efficient vigilance have been constructed. “People’s movement is restricted from Saturday,” he said.

Also, CCTV cameras have been installed to monitor movements near and inside the venue.

“Everyone who intends to attend the rally would be frisked and searched before they enter the venue. No bags, water bottles or belongings will be allowed inside the venue,” he said.

The police assigned for crowd control will be monitoring movement inside the venue. Also, proximity security personnel at the dais will be keeping a close eye on movements near the dais.

Panth said  as many as 5,000 police personnel will be guarding Modi’s rally.
