New Delhi :
Elaborate security arrangements have been made for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rally at Delhi's Ramlila Maidan today amid protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act. The venue is a little over a kilometre away from Old Delhi's Daryaganj that was hit by violence on Friday. The Delhi Police is in close touch with the SPG and the Bharatiya Janata Party for the security arrangements during the programme. The Delhi BJP has also deployed volunteers as part of its security arrangements for the rally.
