Security and other arrangements have been put in place for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rally on the Parade Ground in Dehradun today. Chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, Bharatiya Janata Party state in-charge Shyam Jaju and other party leaders also inspected the venue of the rally on Thursday.
Meanwhile, in order to avoid inconvenience to students and traffic jam, the authorities in schools near the Parade Ground have decided to close early. A rehearsal of the VVIP movement by the police on Thursday resulted in traffic congestion at places along the route.
Superintendent of Police (traffic) PC Arya informed that half day declared by schools near Parade Ground will ease some pressure on the traffic. He said, “Schools near Parade Ground including Saint Joseph’s Academy, Convent of Jesus and Mary, Hillgrange School and Saint Thomas College have decided to close after the first half in order to avoid any inconvenience to the students or the parents. This has surely given us some relief and eased some pressure off our shoulders. The route diversions will be in place from Friday morning,” he said.
Despite the arrangements made by the police, the Parade Ground area and roads leading to it are expected to experience traffic congestion on Friday. In order to minimise this problem, traffic police have asked citizens to avoid travelling on roads directly linked with Parade Ground.
Meanwhile parking spots for MLAs, MPs, officials concerned and media persons has been changed. They will now park at the Doon Club parking.
