Sources from Vishakapatnam have stated that the DGP of Andhra Pradesh N. Samabasiva Rao on Monday reviewed security arrangements being made for the three day Telugu Desam Party Mahanadu to be held at AU Engineering College grounds here from May 27. Meanwhile when speaking to media persons, Mr. Sambasiva Rao said there are two main challenges such as VVIP security and protocol.
He told the media people that “We will be deploying more number of policemen in mufti to handle both the issues. Traffic is another issue that we are concentrating on. The roads leading to the venue are a bit narrow and we are working on how to handle the traffic and the parking”.
Meanwhile when not ruling out the threat from Maoists during the Mahanadu, the DGP said, “We do not rule out the threat perception, despite that the presence of the Maoists in the agency areas. Both the city and the district police are working in tandem on this issue.” He said for the police force the life of every individual is important and there is no political color to it.
