The district administration is all set to host the opening ceremony of the 5th Kabaddi World Cup at the Guru Gobind Singh stadium in the city on Saturday.

Heavy deployment of police has been made around the stadium to avoid any untoward incident.

Deputy commissioner Kamal Kishore Yadav visited the stadium and took note of the final preparations to avoid any shortcoming during the function. After making several rounds of the stadium, the DC said preparations were in place and the event would start with a performance by several popular stars.

Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha will also participate in the event. The traffic in the area will be diverted during the course of the function keeping in view the movement of several VIPs, including the chief minister and his deputy, who will be present.

The entry gates of the stadium have been demarcated to facilitate a smooth flow of public into the stadium for watching the performances.

“We have also formed a committee to take care of all the arrangements such as public sitting, refreshment, and security for the function,” Yadav further said.
