Tight security for Narendra Modi's Brigade rally in Kolkata
Narendra Modi is set to address a public rally in Kolkata on 5 February 2014. This particular rally, drawing huge crowd is nothing new for Kolkata, but people spending money to listen to a leader is something special and rare, and this is what is exactly happening with Narendra Modi's rally at Brigade Grounds Kolkata, where people will shell out money to witness his speech.

A crowd of over 7 lakhs is expected at the rally, which is almost the same as that of the rally addressed by CM Mamata Banarjee recently. A 'pre-rally security arrangement' three days in advance has been started. Over 500 cops have been assigned for the said purpose as well. Apart from this, the National Security Guard (NSGs) are expected to begin their anti-terror exercise, as reported by Economic Times.

Inspite of tight security in place, the West Bengal BJP has expressed their concern over the security arrangements made by the Kolkata police. A Gujarat police team, led by IG (CID) S S Trivedi is also looking into the security issues of Modi's Kolkata rally. They also had a meeting with Lalbazar police officers about some last moment security preparations.

With Central intelligence agencies cautioning the city police regarding similar blasts like the ones at Modi's rally in Bihar, stringent measures are being taken. The bomb squad and the dog squad are also inspecting the ground and the adjacent areas. And on the day of rally, 30 CCTV cameras and six watch towers will monitor the entire venue in order to avoid any mishaps, if any.
