Morning walkers may have to miss their stroll in the sprawling Sandy's Compound here on Sunday. Reason: Chief minister Nitish Kumar is coming. In view of security requirements for a scheduled meeting of chief minister Nitish Kumar at Sandy's Compound on Sunday, the local administration has appealed to the walkers not to visit this place, the most popular spot of the city for morning and evening strolls.

District magistrate Prem Singh Meena on Friday held a meeting to take stock of the planned security arrangements for the CM's visit.

It was decided in the meeting that checkpoints would be set up for intensive checking of vehicles on various roads connecting adjoining districts.

The entry of the common man into the CM's meeting would be allowed through the Naulakha gate as also the Sandyfs Compound gate at the kutchery end.

People would not be allowed to attend the CM's meeting if they carried cellphones, sticks, water bottles, bags, umbrellas and cameras with them.

According to district administration sources, additional police forces brought here from other districts are being deployed in security for the chief minister's visit.
