Bengaluru: Narendra Modi’s 100 mins in the IT capital

BENGALURU: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will bring down the curtains on “Nava Karnataka Nirmana Parivartana Yatra” by addressing a mammoth rally during his 100-minute visit to Bengaluru on Sunday. Sources in the party said Mr Modi would arrive at HAL airport at 3.50 pm, and reach Palace Grounds, venue of the rally, 15 minutes later. He will address the rally for about an hour before returning to HAL airport for departure. 

More than 13,000 police personnel would be deployed to maintain peace and order in the city during Mr Modi's visit. 

The city police have made elaborate security arrangements for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the city to participate in the valedictory of BJP's Parivarthana Rally at Palace Grounds on Sunday. 

As many as 13,000 police personnel, inlcuding three DCPs, 33 ACPs, 122 inspectors and over 300 sub-inspectors, and head constables and constables besides 50 KSRP and 30 CAR platoons will be deployed to maintain law and order.

CCTV cameras have been installed near the venue and the police are conducting verification drills at hotels and lodges, bus-stands, airport and railway stations as part of the standard operating procedure from Saturday, City Police Commissioner T. Suneel Kumar said.
