Modis Vizag visit: Trees to be cut, college walls to be dismantled for public rally; 4000 cops deployed

Over 4,000 police personnel, three units of the anti-terrorist force `Octopus', and six units of anti-Naxal force `Greyhounds' will be deployed for the security of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Vizag on November 11 and 12.

Vizag district administration said elaborate security arrangements have been made to ensure a peaceful and incident-free visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi visit on November 11 and 12.

Prime Minister would lay the foundation stone and inaugurate seven projects in the North Coastal Andhra Pradesh including East Godavari.

City police have decided to deploy elite Octopus and Greyhounds along with armed reserve, law and order police from North Coastal Andhra Pradesh, and East Godavari. More than 2000 police will monitor and control the traffic duties, City Police Commissioner Ch. Srikanth said.

Rajya Sabha member and YSRCP national general secretary V Vijaya Sai Reddy along with Collector A Mallikharjuna, city police chief Ch. Srikanth, GVMC commissioner Raja Babu and Andhra University Vice Chancellor Prof. PVGD Prasada Reddy inspected AU Engineering College Grounds, the venue for prime minister Narendra Modi's public meeting.

More than 1.5 lakh people are expected to attend the public meeting of the PM. The state government has taken it as a prestigious issue and decided to utilize all resources to make the program successful.

Though the AU Engineering College Grounds accommodates more than 70,000 public, the district administration is now planning to accommodate more than 60,000 public in the nearby open space of the engineering college ground.

For public convenience, the AU Engineering College ground boundary wall would be dismantled and leveling of the open ground would be done to accommodate more people. The administration would also remove scores of trees on the north side of the Engineering College ground as part of the Prime Minister's security.
