Police have asked daily commuters to avoid major roads in Gurgaon on Tuesday as Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit the city to inaugurate the year-long golden jubilee celebrations to mark 50 years of the formation of Haryana.
Diversions and restrictions have been put in place on major roads in the city as well as National Highway 8 to ensure hassle-free commute for VVIPs and VIPs towards the venue, Tau Devi Lal stadium off Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway.
The main focus would be Rajiv Chowk, the heart of the city, which is at stone’s throw distance from the venue. The road towards Subhash Chowk on the left will not be accessible to commuters from 2pm as VIPs and VVIPs will take this route on way to the venue.
The road will open for common public only after the event is over, said a police spokesperson.
“Commuters coming from NH 8 and going toward Subhash Chowk and Sohna Chowk will not take a left turn at Rajiv Chowk but will go towards Hero Honda Chowk,” he said.
Apart from the Prime Minister and Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar, over 50,000 people, including 1,500 VIPs and 800 VVIPs, are expected to take part in the event that marks the 51st year of Haryana’s inception.
The guest list includes Haryana governor Kaptan Singh Solanki, politicians from the Bharatiya Janata Party-ruled states including chief ministers, ministers in Union and state government and achievers in various fields from Haryana.
While government establishments remained closed due to public holiday announced by the state government on Monday, attendance was minimal at corporate offices considering the advisory and festival mood.
Prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the CrPC are already in effect from Monday from Leisure Valley in Sector 29 to Tau Devi Lal Stadium.
