PM Modi’s Kashmir rally venue shifted to Bakshi Stadium



Srinagar: The venue for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s upcoming rally in Kashmir has been shifted from Sher-e-Kashmir International Convention Centre (SKICC) to Bakshi Stadium in Srinagar and the decision comes amidst expectations of a huge turnout for the event, which is scheduled to take place on March 7.

The PM has been on a whirlwind tour of the country ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, with his speeches focusing on how his government’s schemes have touched the lives of beneficiaries.

Official sources said that the shift was a need for a larger space to accommodate the expected influx of people.

The Bakshi Stadium, with its larger seating capacity, is deemed more suitable to host the anticipated crowd.

The PM’s rally in Kashmir is expected to be a key event.

The rally is likely to focus on the government’s initiatives and policies for Kashmir, including efforts towards development and peace.

Security arrangements for the rally have already been tightened with authorities leaving no stone unturned to ensure the safety of attendees and dignitaries.

The event is likely to witness the presence of top political leaders and officials, adding to its significance.

PM Modi’s upcoming rally in Kashmir is not just another political event. It marks his first visit to Kashmir since the abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019.

The abrogation of Article 370, which granted special status to J&K, was a landmark decision by the Modi government aimed at integrating Jammu and Kashmir more closely with the rest of India.

PM Modi’s rally is expected to address these issues and highlight the government’s achievements in Kashmir since the abrogation of Article 370.

The rally is also likely to focus on the government’s efforts towards development, peace, and prosperity in Kashmir.

Modi, who visited Jammu last week and inaugurated a series of development initiatives totalling over Rs 32,000 crore, has not visited Kashmir during his second term as Prime Minister.

The last time he visited was in February 2019, ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, as part of his tour to all three regions of the former state – Kashmir, Jammu, and Ladakh.

He had also addressed a public meeting at Sher-e-Kashmir Cricket Stadium in November 2015.

The PM’s visit also comes at a time when Kashmir is witnessing a renewed sense of normalcy and development.

The government has undertaken several initiatives to boost infrastructure, healthcare, education, and tourism, aiming to improve the quality of life for the people of Kashmir.

Security around the venue and other parts of Srinagar has been tightened, with authorities deploying additional forces to ensure the safety of attendees and dignitaries.

The event is expected to draw a large crowd, with people from across Kashmir eager to hear the PM speak.

PM Modi is also likely to visit SKICC where he is scheduled to inaugurate a handicrafts exhibition.

The venue for the PM’s visit has been placed under round-the-clock surveillance with security personnel deployed around.

The security apparatus in the city has been significantly bolstered with additional security forces deployed and heightened surveillance measures in place.

Aerial surveillance drones have been deployed to monitor the area, particularly around the venue’s surrounding areas.

The drones are being used to provide real-time aerial surveillance of the area, allowing security personnel to monitor any suspicious activity and respond quickly.

In addition to the aerial surveillance drones, regular patrolling has been intensified across the city.

Security personnel, including Police and paramilitary forces, are conducting regular patrols both on foot and in boats to ensure the security of the area.
