Foolproof security arrangements have been made for the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who will address a rally at Police Lines here on Tuesday.

The Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of a project meant for four-laning of the Kaithal-Siwani-Rajgarh national highway 65/152 at 12 noon. The 166-km road would be constructed at a cost of `1,394 crore.

Later, Modi will address a public rally where chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and several other central and state ministers would be present.

About the arrangements, additional director general of police (ADGP) Mohammed Akil said only vehicles meant to carry people to the rally venue would be allowed to enter the town. Other vehicles would be routed through alternative routes from Pehowa and Rajaund.

The rally site, he said, had been divided into 48 sectors of which two had been reserved for women. Twelve IPS officers, 24 DSPs and 1,000 police jawans would be deployed at the rally venue.

Deputy commissioner NK Solanki said approach roads to the venue had been made in such a way that people are able to reach the rally site without facing any inconvenience.

The administration had made arrangements for drinking water and parking to accommodate the huge crowd, which is expected at the rally.

At the party level, union minister for transport and roads Krishan Pal Gurjar, who has been made in-charge of the rally, and state BJP president Ram Bilas Sharma are supervising the arrangements for the rally.

The town has been decorated with BJP flags and impressive gates have been put up at all the seven entry points to the town.
