Govt to issue SoPs to states for adherence of security drill
New Delhi: In the wake of multiple blasts near Narendra Modi`s poll rally in Patna, the Home Ministry has decided to issue guidelines to states for strict adherence of security drill to be observed when top leaders address people.
The Centre wants to ensure fool-proof security in rally venues by adhering to strict standard operating procedures to foil any attempt to carry out subversive activities, official sources said.
The guidelines, to be implemented in the run up to the coming assembly elections in five states and 2014 Lok Sabha polls, will ensure anti-sabotage checking and sanitisation of the complete venue well in advance by local police in close coordination with other security agencies.
Besides, door frame metal detectors will have to be installed in each of the entry points of the venues and multi- layered frisking will ensure that every visitor is thoroughly checked with hand-held metal detectors.
Every minute of the main leader`s itinerary will be documented in writing by the police of the state which will host him and will be monitored by senior security officials.
Sources said the security officials feel that leaders become vulnerable during political rallies and hence adherence of a strict security drill will ensure that these rallies become incident free.
