Days after blasts, Patna to host another rally

Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist)

The Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) is holding its rally here amid tight security Wednesday, barely three days after a string of explosions here left six dead and over 80 injured.

The serial blasts in Patna took place on Sunday before Bharatiya Janata Party prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi was to address a rally at the sprawling Gandhi Maidan.

Thousands of cadres and supporters of the CPI(M-L) with red flags and banners are to participate in the `kharbardar' (be warned) rally, ignoring threat perception, police officials said.

Patna District Magistrate N. Saravana Kumar shifted the CPI(M-L) rally venue to the Miller School ground and the adjoining Birchand Patel Marg from the original venue of Gandhi Maidan in view of the security concern.

Police are not taking any chances.

"An elaborate security arrangement have been made for the CPI(M-L) rally in Patna following three more bombs recovered in and around Gandhi Maidan.
