Chief minister Mamata Banerjee has inspected the rally grounds on Tuesday evening to check the arrangements. The security is taken care by the Kolkata police, which will deploy around 5,000 police personnel today. The rally will create a mini bandh kind of atmosphere in the city, as large parts of the city are likely to be closed today.
This will effect the people as it is middle of the working week. The traffic truma is likely to continue till the evening. But the chief minister has already issued an apology for this, stating 'We are sorry for the inconvenience caused to the people'.
The crowd for the rally have started to pour in from different states like Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim since Wednesday to join the Brigade Parade Ground rally.
