Elaborate security for rallies of Modi, Mulayam, Kejriwal

Lucknow, Feb 26: Elaborate security arrangements have been made for the rallies of BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav and Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal in the state on March 2, a senior police officer said on Wednesday.

Modi will address his party's rally in Lucknow, Mulayam in Allahabad and former Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal in Kanpur on the same day.

"We are considering all the rallies as sensitive as it is poll season. Elaborate security arrangements have been made and additional forces have been given to the concerned districts as per their demands," Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Mukul Goel said.

Besides the state's Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC), RAF personnel would also be deployed at the venues, the police officer said.
