Increased Security Before PM Modi and Rahul Gandhi Rallies in Delhi

A 3,000-strong force of local police was scheduled to be deployed on the day of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s two separate rallies, which prompted increased security in several areas of the nation’s capital.

Along with other top officials, Delhi Police Commissioner Sanjay Arora visited the northeast area on Friday to assess the security setup for PM Modi’s event.

Rahul Gandhi, the head of the Congress, will be campaigning in the Chandni Chowk Lok Sabha seat in the meantime.

According to a senior official, Modi would probably use a helicopter to go to the rally venue after speaking at another electoral event in Sonipat, Haryana. There will be at least four layers of protection in place, made up of the local police, the Delhi Police’s security division, and the SPG.

“With other organizations in charge of the prime minister’s security, meetings were conducted.

“We have located buildings and trees along every potential path, and police officers have already been stationed there to maintain a close eye on any activity. In the event of an emergency, all staff members are instructed to report right away, according to a senior police officer.

The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) site located at Yamuna Khadar’s Pushta number 4 has been designated as the electoral gathering’s location. The area is governed by the Ghonda Assembly, which is a parliamentary seat in northeast Delhi.

PM Modi’s rally is expected to start at 4 pm, while Gandhi’s event is scheduled to take place at Ashok Vihar, often known as Chandni Chowk, at about 6 pm.

“Strong security measures have been put in place for both events. At all costs, no one will be permitted to violate the law and order. To maintain law and order, around 3,000 police officers and paramilitary troops would be sent in, the official said.

According to the officer, PCR cars are already on alert, and police have already increased nighttime patrols around the protest grounds at both locations.

Since learning about the demonstration, we have placed restrictions on public access to the area. The officer said, “More police force deployment has already been made, and teams are maintaining a strict vigil around the clock. They have also instructed the traffic police to find alternate routes for daily commuter diversions.”
