Kanyakumari has increased security in anticipation of PM Modi’s arrival

Chennai, 30 May In anticipation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit, which is set to take place at about 4.45 p.m. by helicopter from Thiruvananthapuram International Airport, security has been stepped up in the Kanyakumari district of Tamil Nadu.

From May 30 to June 1, the Prime Minister will be at Kanyakumari for a three-day meditation at the Vivekananda Rock Memorial.

There are around 3,000 police officers ready for the prime minister’s arrival.

After arriving at the district’s official guest home by chopper, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to pay prayers at the Kanyakumari Devi shrine.

The Prime Minister will take a boat to the Vivekananda Rock monument, where he will spend about forty-five hours in the meditation hall.

The district and the Kanyakumari Devi temple, where the prime minister will arrive in the evening for prayers, are both under lockdown.

Congress, however, is against the prime minister staying for three days to meditate. In a letter to the Election Commission of India, K. Selvaperunthagai, the president of the Tamil Nadu Congress Committee, requested that the visit not be allowed since it was against the model code of conduct. This was a quiet campaign for office, according to the leader of Congress.
