Traffic around Oval Grounds, Gun House Circle, K.R. Circle, Moulana Abul Kalam Azad Circle, LIC Circle to be hit

Mysore/Mysuru: Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s road show in Mysuru city on the evening of Apr. 30, the Special Protection Group (SPG) that protects the Prime Minister and the City Police conducted an inspection of the route from Gun House Circle till the LIC Circle in Bannimantap this morning.

The Prime Minister is scheduled to land at Oval Grounds opposite Crawford Hall at 5.35 pm and a temporary helipad is being built to facilitate the landing. The chopper carrying the PM will land at Mysuru from Channapatna and after the Mysuru road show, the PM will fly to Hubballi in a special plane from the Mysore Airport at Mandakalli.

As his trip is a combination of road and air travel, the SPG and the Police have surveyed the areas of strategic importance. A four-member SPG team is already camping in Mysuru ahead of the PM’s poll campaign in Karnataka and the sleuths will move ahead of the PM’s destinations, preparing the ground for his visit.

The SPG team was accompanied this morning by City Police Commissioner Ramesh Banoth, DCPs M. Muthuraj and S. Janhavi, ACP Traffic Parashuramappa and Krishnaraja ACP S.E. Gangadharaswamy. Whether the PM will go on a solo 4.1-km road show or will he be accompanied by the BJP candidates is yet to be decided.

After inspecting the Oval Grounds, the team proceeded on the route that will be taken by the PM to the Gun House Circle via MUDA Circle and Ramaswamy Circle. From there, the team inspected the road show route from Gun House Circle to the LIC Circle in Bannimantap via K.R. Circle, Government Ayurveda Hospital Circle, New Sayyaji Rao Road and Moulana Abul Kalam Azad Circle (Highway Circle).

Traffic will be banned on these roads ahead and during the PM’s visit and the stretches will be sanitised by the Bomb Squad and Anti-Sabotage Check Squad. After the road show, the PM’s cavalcade will reach the Ring Road via Manipal Hospital Junction and will travel to the Mysore Airport.
