Patna: The city administration stepped up on its effort to spruce up Patna ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's scheduled arrival on October 14 when he will be participating in the 100th anniversary of the foundation of historical Patna University.
Workers were seen giving a fresh coat of paint to the road dividers between Patna Airport and the university campus as law enforcement officials scurried to put up security check points at various locations to ensure the PM's visit was without any untoward incident.
Officials said that the administration was not leaving anything to chance as it was setting up 70 closed circuit cameras between Kargil Chowk near Mona Cinema and Patna Science College on Ashok Rajpath to monitor every single activity during the PM's short visit this Saturday.
These cameras are over and above the surveillance equipment already installed on this 2.5 kilometer stretch of Patna's one of the busiest roads, they said.
The Prime Minister, after attending the inaugural ceremony, will leave on a special helicopter for Mokama where he will participate in a ground-breaking ceremony of a bridge over the Ganges.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
