BANGALORE: During the forthcoming Global Investors Meet in the city, Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa wants traffic arrangement to be such that commuting remains hassle free for the dignitaries, while not putting the common man at inconvenience either.
The chief minister has directed the state police to obtain threat perception of each visiting dignitary and provide security cover appropriately.
“The chief minister’s view is that the security and traffic arrangements must be unobtrusive.
He wants the police to plan from now, both for the guests as well as for the natives,” said a top official. “He has decided to convene a meeting of the city police top brass to ensure that everything is taken care of.” The mega-event will be held on June 3 and 4 at the sprawling Bangalore Palace Grounds.
Yeddyurappa has recalled the infamous Janata Dal (S) rally that was held in the Palace Grounds a few years ago.
The rally had caused unprecedented traffic jam and gridlock in the city for more than six hours.
“The chief minister wants the police to keep this nightmare in mind and plan the traffic arrangements meticulously,” said another official from the industries department.
