Kutch; Dec.19: With Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Gujarat's Kutch district for an all-India conference of top police officials, high security measures have been put in place.
A bulletproof tent, called The Darbar, has been set up for PM Modi in Dhordo, where the conference is being held. The PM will spend two day here.
As part of special arrangements for the PM's security, with him being so close to the border with Pakistan, anti-aircrafts guns have been placed around the tent city Dhordo. The area has been declared a no-flying zone.
After inaugurating the Director General of Police's conference this evening, PM Modi visited the white Rann of Kutch where we watched the sunset. All officers attending the conference have been directed to watch either the sunrise or the sunset by the Intelligence Bureau, which had organized the meet.
For the first time, PM Modi will be spending over 48 hours with all police personnel and a detailed programme has been chalked out. Each Director General of Police (DGP) has been asked to make a presentation to the PM about the issues that concern their state.
Some of the key topics which will be discussed at the meeting are radicalisation of the youth, perceived 'intolerance', cyber security, threat from ISIS and the role of social media.
Barring DGPs from Uttar Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir who have cited law and order problems in their respective states, top cops from all states will be attending the conference.
