Last minute preparations for Brigade rally on in full swing
Bengal is gearing up for Brigade rally. Trinamool Chairperson Ms. Mamata Banerjee inspected the rally grounds on Tuesday evening to take stock of the security measures. Crowds are expected to spill over to all the roads hemming the Brigade Parade Grounds – Queensway, Hospital Road, Outram Road and J L Nehru Road (from Park Street crossing to Birla Planetarium).
Police will be deployed from 9 AM, around the time the first lot of supporters step into the Brigade Parade Grounds. “People have already started arriving in the city,” said Trinamool State President Subrata Bakshi.
The three-tier dais being constructed this year is the biggest ever, measuring 75 ft X 64 ft. Seven cameras will cover the rally. Around 5,000 volunteers will be at the ground itself and 11 medical camps will be set up across the city.
