The city is gearing up for Prime Minister Narendra’s Modi rally on Tuesday at the Parade Ground even as a minor controversy brew over the district authorities’ initial decision to close all schools in view of the rally. However, the order was reversed after DM Ravinath Raman claimed that the police had intimated them about alternate route arrangements being made which did not necessitate closure of schools.
Meanwhile, work progressed at a frantic pace at the Parade Ground on Tuesday with an army of workers involved in making the venue ready for the rally where the PM will launch the 900-km long Chardham Highway Development Project.
Police officials said that heavy security arrangements are being put in place to ensure the event goes off smoothly. “No vehicle will be allowed to ply near the venue on the day. Route diversions are also being announced so that people do not face inconvenience while commuting,” said Sweety Agarwal, senior superintendent of police (SSP).
